How to Build a Display Coffee Table
From our new Hammer It Out series: Show off your collectibles with a acrylic-topped case that does double duty as a living room table
A cardboard box buried in the garage is no home for your grandfather's hand tools or your own hard-won collectibles. Why not showcase them properly, in a coffee table with a sunken inset and a removable top that you build yourself? With little more than a few lengths of lumber, some stock legs, and a sheet of acrylic, you'll have a fine piece of furniture that's fittingly handsome for the history on display.
