I was on the hunt for the perfect nightstands for the boys room. Everything I was finding was out of my budget, and even worse cheaply made. Today I’m going to share the easiest console table tutorial on the internet. To build this you’ll need 6×6 and 2×4 pieces of lumber from The Home Depot. We purchased these for our deck build. You can view all of the reels for the deck build starting here on Instagram. Above all, always try and utilize your scrap wood. The less waste, the better.
How to build the console table
Every space is different, so the measurements of this table might not work in your space. However, these are the measurements of my console table below.
- 6×6 legs- 28 inches tall
- 2×4 top- 40 inches long
- 4×4 support- 40 inches long
First I cut all four 6×6 legs using our miter saw. Then I cut down my 2×4’s for the top. Lastly, I added a 4×4 support in the center by notching out a spot with my miter saw and crow bar. Using construction screws, I attached the middle support to the legs, and lastly the top boards. Finally, I gave the console table its finished look by applying this stain.
