Parquet Coffee Table

A few weeks ago Ashley from Shanty2Chic built this awesome industrial cart coffee table. Well, now it’s Whitney’s turn and she really knocked it out of the park with this Parquet Coffee Table. She was able to have an awesome metal base welded up but for those of you who want to build your own, I’ve included a simple base to show off the detailed parquet pattern top. I have always loved this pattern ever since we built our parquet X-brace coffee table. I hope you enjoy these plans and please don’t be intimidated by the pattern, but think of it as a puzzle! Cheers!

    this might be a dumb question, but is there anything other than the height to consider if i’m wanting to make this a kitchen table rather than a coffee table?

    • Not a dumb question at all. The only other thing to consider is if you wanted it a little longer and wider. Which could be an issue with this pattern.

      Sarah, I am trying to make this into a kitchen table as well. I just worked out the plans to include six of the 20 1/2″ x 20 1/2″ parquets bordered with the 2 x 4s and the table comes out to 75 1/2″ x 51 1/2″. Not a bad size table.

        Did you end up building the table? How did it work? I’m wanting to do the same thing and want a fairly large table. I would love to see how yours turned out if you wouldn’t mind sharing!

    I don’t know if you have access to the dimensions of the steel bottom but if you do I’d love to have them. This piece was my inspiration to get into welding! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    LOVE this! Great job. I too would like to make a kitchen table just like this. I’m wondering if there is an easy way to multiply or enlarge your dimensions to create a table top that is 72″ x 36″. How did you come up with the measurements for your pattern?

    • Unfortunately, I designed this table around the pattern and using stock wood dimensions. You could grow the dimensions but it would require a lot more cutting and odd wood sizes. Sorry I could be more help.

        Thanks! Did you use some sort of software to figure out the sizes? Or just engineering genius? 🙂 I wish there was design software to accomplish this, but if not, I’m thinking I can figure it out using newspaper templates. Or trying to translate your dimensions using 1 x 6’s instead of 1 x 4s. Thanks for the great idea! Really enjoying your site.
