This Modern Sofa Table was a ton of fun to build! It is a perfect sofa side table and fits the mid-century modern style to a T. To build this c-shaped table, I used many different woodworking techniques. The slats are held in with dominos, but you could use dowels or attach a thin strip on the underside to support the top. I created router templates and used a flush-trim bit at the router table to create the shapes for the tapered legs and base.
I used walnut and maple hardwood, and the contrast from the tabletop to the base looks great. I designed it to sit right above the height of the arm on my couch. If you decide to make it, be sure to measure your couch height and adjust it to fit your setup. I made this one go right over my couch’s arm, but your size probably differs. So keep that in mind.

And if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them in the comments!
