How Long Does it Take to Make a Coffee Table with Hairpin Legs?

A custom coffee table is an expression of who we are. As a centerpiece of the living area, coffee tables are a highly visible part of our daily lives. It is great to have this central piece of furniture express who we are and how we keep our homes. Making your own coffee is the very best way to make sure it truly expresses who you are. And it need not take long to make it. Do you like rustic pieces with an antique touch? A great combo for you might be an old wooden door with Square Bar hairpin legs or tapered angle iron legs. Like things more refined with a classic look? Than a refinished oak desk or table top with classic metal hairpin legs may be your style.

No matter what you choose to use, it is easy to get your own coffee table put together. Once you’ve picked out the top you want and the style of metal hairpin legs you just need to attach them with wood screws and you’re all done! Customers have told us that with a rough-style tabletop the whole process can take under an hour. With more attention to detail, like refinishing the tabletop, it could take an afternoon to get all of the pieces ready to be put together. It’s up to you how much time you want to take but either way you’ll have your very own hand-build table in less time than you may think.

You don’t have to take on a finished project like our customer Marco did here (thanks for the pic, Marco!), but it’s proof that if you can dream it, you can make it.
