DIY Pipe Coffee Table

This rustic modern coffee table is made from 2x8s, angle irons, and black iron pipe. I used angle irons to bind the pieces of 2×8 together and then made a legs for the table out of ¾” diameter plumbers pipe. It is a sturdy table that can be made in a variety of sizes and heights.

I’m new to wood working and would love to make this table. What type of wood do you recommend for coffee table (pine, cedar, ect)? I would love to hear some advantages/disadvantages of different types of wood for this project.

Do you use a planer on your boards or just pick the least bowed boards in the store?

Julie Tran says:

God bless Ben’s beard.

David Boisseleau says:

Hi Ben, I did almost the same one  with cherry wood but no metal edge. It’s beautiful, and very easy to make with pipes. Keep up the good work ! Love your channel.

I thoroughly enjoy watching your videos. However, might I suggest, tucking your headphone wires UNDER your shirt? PLEASE? I can’t tell you how many times I cringed in fear thinking “This is it. This is how he goes out. By accidentally getting his earbuds caught.” I need you around for a very long time, as so I can continue to learn DIYs! 🙂

Krystal Oliva says:

Love your videos! Would it be a terrible idea to use an iron pipe table as an outdoor dining table? Would I need to treat the iron somehow or should I consider another project? Thanks!

Ryan Jones says:

How much did this project cost?

Glenn Canning says:

Great video, as usual. I’m building a coffee table right now myself, and I’m wondering what finish would be best for the wood table top. We eat a lot of meals at our coffee table, so I need something waterproof and durable. Would danish oil handle this well? I like the idea of using oil over polycrylic, but I’m not positive if it’d be as safe.

Thanks again for the video, I really like your stuff.

Luke says:

Ben, do you think you could include approximate project costs on your videos? I could estimate, but I think many people could benefit. Thanks for your great content!

Andy Douglass says:

Nice simple, easy table. Beginners should feel comfortable attempting this.

One option to make it even easier would be to flip the angle iron to the bottom of the table. The end cuts would still be covered but you wouldn’t have to notch the ends, which is probably the most difficult part of the build. Of course, that would change the aesthetic, and stuff might tend to get trapped between the wood and the iron.
