Three-Drawer Coffee Table
Rich in detail, but surprisingly straightforward to build, this project offers a great shop experience followed by years of enjoyable use.
This design is loosely based on tall chests of narrow drawers used to store maps. But a change in scale creates a project that combines handy storage with a spacious coffee table. Despite the impressive appearance, you’ll find that your time in the shop is pretty relaxed. In essence, the case is a plywood and web frame shell that’s “skinned” with a frame and panel exterior. This simplifies the work by letting you make and add the exterior details individually. There’s no harrowing “one shot” case assembly. Just take it leisurely and look forward to the end result.

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.
