Free Plans to Build a Horchow Inspired Key Coffee Table

At first glance, this table looks difficult. It really isn’t, I swear! Though the construction method is a little different, this table is a super-quick build!

For this plan, there is no cut list. The pieces are measured and cut as assembled. All of the plywood pieces will be 24″ wide. It will be easier to rip the plywood pieces in half lengthwise before beginning – this will make the pieces slightly less than 24″ wide.  The length of all pieces, including the 1x2s will be noted in each step. The pieces are labeled by number as well as each assembly (see each step). The assemblies will be attached to each piece using glue and brad nails which are applied through the corresponding piece into the assembly.
