A Super-Simple Table That Can Be Used Indoors or Outdoors
This easy to build hexagon end table is a fabulous weekend project! The plans are suitable for all skill levels, and the table can be finished however desired. All safety protocols should be in place and a comfortable, working knowledge of a table saw is helpful for cutting the bevels in the side panels.
- 2″ Brad nails (<– affiliate link!)
- Edge banding, if desired (for the top of the side panels)
- Wood glue
- Sandpaper (80, 120, 220 grits)
- Finishing supplies
- 1 – 4′ x 4′ sheet of 3/4″ plywood
- 2 – 3/4″ plywood at 14″ x 16″ – Top and Bottom
- 6 – 3/4″ plywood at 8-7/8″ x 22″ – Panels
Notes About the Project:
- Sand all of the pieces before putting the table together
- The edge banding for the exposed edges of the panels is totally optional
- If building the table for the outdoors, make sure to use a proper outdoor finish!
Draw and cut out the pieces for the top and bottom on the plywood. Cut them out using a circular saw or a jigsaw.
Cut the pieces for the side panels. Set the table saw to cut a 30° bevel and run each piece through the saw cutting the bevel on the long sides of each piece.
Assemble the pieces by securing a panel to each flat side of the top and bottom using glue and 2″ brad nails. Apply a bead of glue to each bevel before placing the next piece.
Finish as desired!
