Today on Modern Builds I’m experimenting making a metal coffee table base without any welding. I had a lot of fun trying this idea out and learned a lot in the process. I know it’s not as strong as a welded table, but is a great option for the casual DIY’er that doesn’t have the resources to weld. Make sure and watch the demo/explanation towards the end of the video before criticizing or critiqueing please. ALSO, I beefed up the written article for this project with a 3D model and step by step plans, so make sure and check that out if you plan on building this coffee table for yourself.
