Create extra space and seating with this coffee table and rolling ottoman.

  • 90”x 24” Solid wood core door precut into 3 pieces (Two 15”x24” and one 60”x 24”)
  • Drill with 3/8” drill bit
  • (6) 3/8” Dowels
  • Mallet
  • Clamps
  • Wood glue
  • Ottoman
  • (4) Casters
  • Wood stain


    Measure and mark for 3 dowels on the short ends of the smaller door pieces, 1” from each edge and center.

    Select which side of the larger door piece will be the table top, flip it upside down, measure and mark for 3 dowels on the bottom surface 1” from each edge and center. Ensure placement matches where the top and the side legs will be joined.

    Pre­drill dowel holes with a 3/8” drill bit and insert the dowels on the table top.

    Add wood glue to the dowel holes of one of the smaller door pieces, and fit the legs over the table top dowels. Repeat on the other end (these will be the sides of the table).

    Turn the ottoman upside down and remove the existing legs from the bottom and install the casters.This helps lower the ottoman height.

    Set the ottoman aside and prepare to stain the wood table. USE GLOVES! This helps prevent you from absorbing the stain into your skin.

    Use paper towel to apply layers of the stain. Don’t wipe in arcs, but instead, make it even by going with the grain on the wood (not in circular motions). You can always go back and even out.
