our Hints, Tips and Recommendations!
This plan uses two types of pocket hole joinery: right angle - which is what you use most of the time; and edge joinery - used here to add the finished edge to the coffee table top.
The "Project Notes" and "DIY Tips" are very helpful. We recommend you read the plan through before starting, and then review the Project Notes at every stage of building.
If, at some time in the future, you wanted to change the table top to a solid wood one, it would be very simple to back out the pocket hole screws to detach the base. And then screw the base to a new table top.
If you didn't buy the Kreg DIY
Project Kit - this plan is Free with that kit -, the purchase price of $7 for this plan is well worth it,
especially if this is one of your first projects.
