When the glue is dry, you can finish the wood. If you use clear varnish, we recommend that you apply one coat and then sand the surface with 180-grit sandpaper before adding a second coat of varnish to your DIY table. Alternatively, you can apply hardwax oil for a more natural finish that still protects the wood.
Using your DIY side table
When it’s finished, your side table needs a home! It makes a lovely living room plant stand, or a handy piece of furniture to keep by the couch for books and magazines. The stylish minimalist design makes it a versatile and striking addition to a room.
Admiring your handiwork may give you the taste for more DIY. It’s easy to adjust the size and design of the wooden side table, so why not make a whole set?
