DIY Coffee Table

Build Basic - DIY Coffee Table by reader Marlin Dart -

Marlin Dart, from Casselton, ND used our DIY Coffee Table Plans to create this beautiful addition to his living room! To get the rich finish, he used two coats Minwax stain in Dark Walnut, followed by Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane in a satin finish.

Thanks for sharing, Marlin. Awesome build!
