These Free build plans include 5 different coffee table top options.
Here's another great, little side table that has been downloaded A LOT. I wonder if it's because it can be built so cheaply??
I built mine with resawn 2x4's. But, the plans can be tweaked a little to be made with 2x2's and 1x2's instead.
I found that live edge Cedar at my local hardware store for about $25. So, I designed this whole bench to show that off. BUT, you can use a 2x6 as the back instead.
And, you can use all Pine or all Cedar to get the look you like with this bench.
This build is always a hit at Christmastime. I designed this box with a bottom so that it works as Christmas décor storage when I pack everything up after Christmas.
