Arched-Stretcher Sofa Table
This table is a great addition to any space, casual or formal... It can be a companion to your sofa, or work well in an entryway.
Historically, a sofa table has been a quiet servant that waits dutifully in the wings of the room — behind the sofa, but this handsome piece of furniture has more to offer. The legs and arched stretcher are glued up from thick stock to give the base of the table a strong, massive look. Using thinner 5/4 material for the top balances the design. This all means it could serve as a streamlined replacement for a larger buffet in the dining room. Or take up residence in a hallway or entryway. It would also work well tucked under a wall-mounted TV. All of these versatile options might suggest that you have a complex project that you’re preparing to tackle, but that’s not the case at all. You’ll find complete instructions on building this table from the ground up.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
