Build a Brooklyn Table

Free Plans to Build a Brooklyn Table

This is the final piece in the Brooklyn collection. We started with the Brooklyn chair and then the Brooklyn bar stool. The free plans to build a Brooklyn Table are easy to customize so that either the chairs or bar stools can be used with it just by changing the height of the leg in the plans!

Like the chair or bar stool, this table will work equally indoors or out! I think it would be fabulous in a breakfast nook or even as a game table in a family room!

If building this project at regular table height, the length for the legs is in brackets in the cut list!

Materials:

Lumber:

  • 2 – 2×3 at 8′
  • 1 – 2×3 at 4′
  • 1 – 2×4 at 6′
  • 1 – half sheet of 3/4″ plywood

Cut List:

  • 4 – 2×4 at 35-1/4″ {29-1/4″} – Legs
  • 4 – 2×3 at 22″ – Side Stretchers
  • 2 – 2×3 at 42″ – Upper Stretchers
  • 1 – 2×3 at 39″ – Lower Stretcher

Finish as desired!

The free plans to build a Brooklyn Table complete a really neat (and super-easy) collection. It is also very inexpensive to create this set whether the bar height or regular height are chosen! Share your fabulous work with me… Send photos to cher {at} designsbystudioc {dot} com or designsbystudioc {at} gmail {dot} com.
