Build Your Own Entry TableAdvertisement
Build Your Own Entry Table – We made another table!! It all started because I wanted a console table for my foyer and couldn’t decide which one to buy and I spent so much time thinking about it that I finally just decided to design my own. And decided to build and here we are. The basic concept of this table is quite simple, it’s just 4 rows of 4×4 lumber cut at 45 degree angles and glued and bolted with steel brackets and chunky bolts.
If you don’t feel like going through all the trouble of building your own but love the look, there are many similar ready-made tables available online and I’ve listed a bunch of them here if you’re interested.

As always, please be extremely careful when using any tools and take all appropriate safety precautions!

Below is an overview of how to create a console table. Get the complete plan with all dimensions and cut lists here.
And drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes in each end of your 4-2×2 apron support and your 6 rail and 1 middle support pieces.
Attach your top apron and support pieces to your sides using wood glue and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws. Note: You will also add your middle support boards to the center of the top apron (not pictured), I added this as a last minute support board.

Step 4: At this point I’m done with my frame and top and shelf boards before I proceed with the rest of the construction, this is optional.
Attach all shelves with 2 1/2″ self-tapping screws from the bottom drilling through the side rails and supports.
This is a really quick build, I bought the wood and built it before my kids got home from school. Well technically I hadn’t attached the top and shelf board yet, but the base was built and spray painted!
I love that you can get a high end piece of furniture for a fraction of the price.

It’s also such a versatile piece. I can be used behind a sofa, for your TV and media, or as an entry table. This new Double X console table is the anchor piece of the room. It’s a similar style to one of my favorite benches, only made the size of a table. 🙂 The wood for this table is only $38! sweet
Measure and mark the side centers of the 10″ spacers and the end centers of the top/bottom supports. Use wood glue and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach spacers to each end of the support piece.
On the top of the legs, measure and mark just under 1″ from each side. Use wood glue and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach the spacers/upper supports to the top of the legs. The tops of the legs should be flush with the spacer tops.
Turn the table legs upside down to connect the X pieces. Mark the centerline of the upper support and measure/mark 21 1/8″ on center from each spacer.
Diy Brass Side Tables
Use wood glue and a 2″ brad nail (or screw) to attach the X pieces to the spacer/upper support. Line up one X piece on the edge of the spacer and another at 21 1/8″ (as shown), do the same on the opposite side (as shown).
Apply some wood glue to the ends of the spacers and place the bottom support/spacer piece on top of the X pieces. Secure the spacers to the legs with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws. At this stage it is helpful if you have a small square bit for the pocket hole screws, if not, try and go to an angle if needed.
Center the middle table top board on the table base. There should be about a 9 3/8″ overhang at each end. Use 2 1/2″ screws and secure to the table top piece with spacers. (You can secure the spacers below the tabletop if you prefer.) Place the other tabletop pieces next to the center top piece and secure with screws.
Sand the Double X console table until smooth, starting with 80 grit sandpaper, 120 grit then 180 grit (and finer if you like.) Be sure to remove any excess glue. I stained a very simple table using wood accelerators in brown. I just brushed the Accelerator onto the wood and it slowly changed color as it soaked. Add a protective top coat to the console table.

How To Build A Diy Farmhouse Console Table
One thing I always regretted not having in my old house was an original entryway. I’ve always dreamed of a spacious entry with hooks and benches and a cozy feel that says “Hey, you’re home!” But, instead, we had a front door that opened right in your face to a staircase and the living room was right next to it. So, I put my dreams aside to enter another house.
I have more to do than ever! If you remember when we first talked about our new home, we have a small hallway that greets you when you first walk into the room and,
The space has been empty since we moved into the house back in November, but I’ve been talking about making a DIY console table for it for a long time. I wanted something modern and simple that would allow us to throw away our keys when we walked in the door, but also feel comfortable and welcoming.
It took a little longer to complete than we expected, but if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that the DIY console table is done and I’m into it.

I feel obligated to point out the fact that the mirror above the console in these photos probably won’t stay – we had to hang it too low to make it look “flowing” with the table, but it actually does. But doesn’t work. Height We’re still playing around with other options, and we still need to hide the lamp cord, among other things (and replace the lamp, since it’s broken), so the space is still pretty high. work in progress.
