Teak Coffee Table – You can make a coffee table of some kind of wood, even an old stump. The kind of wooden coffee table you make depends on your skill as a furniture maker, the tools you have, what kind of wood you have – or can get – and personal preferences. If you are knowledgeable and have the tools, you can make a great table with rounded legs and a wooden parquet top. Or you can find a suitable stump and top it with a giant flat cut from a large tree trunk.

Design a Teak Coffee Table to suit your embellishment system, budget and wood workability. In its simplest form, a coffee table is a wooden board – generally about 18 inches wide and 36 inches tall – atop a base usually about 15 inches high, although these dimensions may vary.
Build a base. This can be as simple as four legs, square or round, which will attach directly to the top. Or you can build a Teak Coffee Table frame – four legs joined on all sides of horizontal braces – with the elements fashioned on a wooden lathe, cut into special shapes with a band saw or similar tool or square with a table saw. Design your base so that the screws or other joints that hold together are hidden. This can be done by twisting a rectangular box, then attach the legs and braces to it with screws from the inside. Or you can use tap or similar joint technology.
