A side table can be used almost anywhere in your house – by a sofa, by the bed, or by a chair. Finding a table that is as beautiful as it is functional can be difficult when you are on a budget. Amy from hertoolbelt has designed an elegant side table for you to build with or without a zinc top.
In her blog, Amy gives us a complete list of tools and materials she used for this project. The cut list and diagram of the wood pieces are detailed and easy to read. Besides the optional zinc top, Amy provides instructions for constructing the optional drawer for the table. Because of these options, the table can be customized in any way that will suit your needs.
Amy used a piece of 30 gauge sheet metal for the zinc top, and she explains how she treated it and attached it to the top of the table.
