Build a Tura Coffee Table

Free Plans to Build a Tura Coffee Table

I like this coffee table… The free plans to build a Tura Coffee Table have a drawer to hide the remotes and other assorted goodies (like lip balm, lotion, and snacks) from assorted four-legged furry friends who like to run off with them! Also, the top is like a blank canvas that can be decorated however your heart desires!

Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs and side frames. Drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces. Use glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws to secure the upper frame piece to the legs, and glue and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws to secure the lower frame piece to the legs. Orient the pocket holes in the lower piece so they face down and won’t have to be filled!

    Coffee tables (their size and shape) can be really versatile. A great place for everyone to sit on the floor around the table and play a good board game , especially during this really hot weather. It’s 95 today. The drawer is a great addition as a place to put all of the “stuff” away. I am curious how this table would look using 4×4 legs and maybe 2×4 stretchers. Just a thought. My building is on hold for a couple of months because the garage is regularly 100 degrees F.

      Hi, Jake! It would probably look equally awesome with 4×4 legs! My building is on hold too… Way too hot but supposed to cool down in a couple of days!
