I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and I stumbled across a video of a simple DIY sofa table. The idea was to get a single 1×6 the length of your couch, get a few deck spindles, attach with L-brackets, paint and enjoy. I started with that idea and then added a few touches of my own.

I decided to use two matching lengths of 1×6 to create a two piece table (more for transportation purposes). I used 6 deck spindles and instead of using L-brackets I wanted to use pocket holes to be more atheistically pleasing. I put two spindles on each end and then I offset the spindles in the middle. To add more of a decorative look I used the router and a Cove and Bead bit on the under side and a 1/8” round over on the top. Add a bit of stain and poly and we were good to go.

Additionally, to solve some power issues we were having in our living room I added a power/USB outlet to the top side connected to a power strip mounted to the under side.
