This Salvaged Round Table is a super easy build that you can knock out in just a few hours. You can honor the salvaged look, or just go for that clean and simple look of fresh cut lumber- the choice is yours! Either way, make sure you let us see your work!
As with all of our plans, you are building at your own risk and you should have a firm understanding of building in general before you attempt many of our plans (some are easy as pie and perfect for beginners). With that, go forth, have fun, take lots of pictures and share them in a showcase on the site or on social media with the hashtag #builtTDCtuff and we will share our faves! Be sure to tag @thedesignconfidential on Instagram / FB and @thedesconf on Twitter / Pinterest. If you are a blogger and you post about your build, don’t forget to include a link to your post on your showcase here. Don’t forget… for all of our newer plans, clicking on the images will let them expand to enormous sizes with much greater clarity. The older plans may need updating so please let us know if you need one fixed!

Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.
Cut the pieces for the Short and Long Lower Supports. With the Kreg jig set for 1-1/2” material, drill pocket holes in each end and on both sides of the Short Lower Supports and the Long Lower Support. Assemble as shown with glue and 2-1/2” Pocket Screws. Make sure that the angled pieces are positioned so their bottoms are longer than their tops (i.e the angle tapers inward as it moves upward).
With your Kreg Jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes along the long edge of the Short and Long Upper Supports as shown.
Attach the Short Upper Supports to the Long Upper Support as shown with glue and 2-1/2” Pocket Screws. Opposite of the Lower Support Assembly, make sure that the angled pieces are positioned so their tops are longer than their bottoms (i.e the angle tapers outward as it moves upward).
Cut the pieces for the Table Legs. With the Kreg jig set for 1-1/2” material, drill pocket holes on both sides of the top ends of each Table Leg.
Assemble the Short and Long Lower Support assembly and the Short and Long Upper Support assembly to the Table Legs as shown.
Cut the piece for Table Top as shown. Apply Edge Banding to the plywood edge if desired. Place on top of the Short and Long Upper Supports as indicated and secure with glue and 1-1/4” Pocket Screws. If you really want to rock the “salvaged” look, be sure to manually distress the Dining Table before finishing it!
Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired. For Finishing Tips and Tricks visit my Finishing School
