When my wife sent me an inspiration photo for our new coffee table I knew I had just the right material for the job. I recently purchased a sheet of 3/4″ walnut veneered plywood and didn’t end up using it. However, I was unsure if it would be enough for this job. After designing it and laying it all out, I knew it could work. Using some techniques I’ve picked up over the years I was able to make a 46″ round coffee table from a single sheet of plywood and it turned out even better than her or I could have ever expected.

- Cut List
Use a scrap board to mount your router to and drill a hole 23″ from the edge of the router bit. Then secure with a 1-1/4″ wood screw to the location that will be the middle (bottom) of your table top. Use a spiral upcut bit to cut out the circle.
