Drop-Leaf Coffee Table

If you've never built a drop-leaf table before, this is a great starter project to try your hand at drop-leaf hinges. And with a few dimension changes, you can easily build a sofa table to match.

The pine legs can be purchased already turned, or if you wish, use our leg patterns (included) to turn the legs yourself.

The coffee table is 36" long x 21" wide x 16" high with the leaves down. With the leaves up, the table is 36" wide. This project was originally published in Woodsmith Magazine No. 135.
