Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.
Making a coffee table from the ground up is a difficult task in and of itself, so shouldn’t adding a fireplace dead center make it downright impossible? After all, wooden coffee tables shouldn’t be designed to house a source of open flame, right? Wrong on both counts. Jonathan Odom is a full-time designer at the Instructables Design Studio (username JON-A-TRON) who has a complete walk-through on how to build your very own Fireplace Coffee Table with wood, concrete and some parts readily available on everyone’s favorite Internet big box store. Between the woodworking, concrete casting and open flame, this project scratches all the DIY itches.
