DIY Plans to Build a Round Top Side Table

This table is really, really easy to construct… With a round top and open frame legs, this table will look great in any room with any style! Four leg assemblies are created which are attached to a 2x2 hidden in the center. A round pre-made tabletop (available at most major home improvement retailers) is secured to the top of the legs creating a super-simple table!

Step One
Cut the pieces for the leg framing. Four assemblies will be created. Mark the position for the horizontal pieces on the vertical (longer) pieces and pre-drill the holes for the screws. The horizontal pieces are secured to the vertical pieces using glue and countersunk 1-1/2” screws.
