We love the mix of iron and wood, but since we aren’t exactly welders… well, we had to fake it. We built this simple angled leg coffee table with faux iron rods for less than $30! This table is simple yet still adds tons of character to any room. Plus, when you make something yourself, it’s always a great conversation piece!

Finishing

Since we decided to use a mix of finishes, we finished each section before we assembled the table. For the table I stained with Varathane Early American and sealed with satin triple-thick polyurethane. To see how Jamie did the “faux iron” on the 2x2s be sure to check out her faux corroded iron finish tutorial.

    So many pocket screws. Just wondering if you’ve ever had issues, especially the table top and the way it’s attached?

    • I go with pocket holes because it’s fast and easy but a variety of joinery could be used. And no, I have never had any issues using pocket hole screws.

  • Mike Nevitt

    So i see you used the Varathane triple thick poly on this. I used the same on the farmhouse table I just finished (and tagged you on last night). I had trouble applying it and got lots of brush strokes and an uneven finish. I also think it was drying faster than I could get it on and even. I ended up sanding it all down and putting another coat on using a foam brush this time. There is still some brush stroke looking spots but it looks much better. I used minwax quick drying ploy for a book case and cornhole boards and didn’t have these kind of issues. Wondering if it’s just this thick stuff. Any tips for getting that stuff (or any poly for that matter) on in a smooth way? Thanks!

    • Randy Felder

      Hey Mike! I’ve had a similar problem before. What works for me is to apply 2 – 3 coats of the thicker poly using a finer grit sandpaper (180, 220, 320) between each coat and then finish with a thin coat of wipe on poly.

    • Randy’s suggestion sounds like a good one. I usually apply mine with a foam brush and it is more or less self-leveling. I’ve had a couple issues with drips on vertical surfaces but always lended that to rushing it. To be honest, to get the very best finish I like to spray the poly on using a sprayer.

    I assembled this table as my first project and it looks quite good. Thanks for posting this! Only issue was pocket hole screws ended up protruding out on the other side. I was using 1.5 inch holes with 2.5 inch pocket hole screws. I guess I was pushing it too far in?

    • Awesome. Hope you enjoyed your first build. We would love to see some pictures. As for the issue you ran into, your drill bit might have been set a little too deep which is why they came through.

  • Jim Luby

    this will be my first build. why do you have brad nailer listed as a required tool?

  • dshanley7

    I’m curious, are you using the factory edges for the top or ripping the boards and getting them square?

  • Jim Luby

    Here’s a pic of my first build. Thanks Jamison for the inspiration and the plans! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f96c49b8f93b24bda42571dc19f6ca66ff960ec793707131e3a362106b53b8fc.jpg
