We’ve taken one of our most popular plans, the Rustic X Console, and made it outdoor friendly and NOT require a pocket hole jig!

How is the Farmhouse Console Table different than the Rustic X?

  • Faster and easier to build – just screw together.  No pocket holes required.
  • A little less expensive to build since no 1x12s are used
  • Very easy to modify the size
  • Slatted shelves
  • Will have exposed screw holes (Rustic X uses pocket holes so all screw holes are hidden)
  • Will be slightly heavier overall (both are solid wood so quite heavy)

Video of Matching Coffee Table Build

To see how this console table is put together, please watch our video on the matching Farmhouse Coffee Table.  The construction techniques are the same.  This video is especially helpful for cutting the X on the end.

The plans for the matching Farmhouse Coffee Table are here.

Is there a matching End Table Plan too?

Yes!  We posted plans for the matching end table in two size options here.

One of our readers, Jessica, was kind enough to build and photograph this project for you!  Jessica did say the many shelf pieces were a little tedious to add (there’s alot of them!) but she had alot of fun building it and did an amazing job!

First, she built the legs.  Notice how the top and bottom horizontal pieces over extend past the leg?

That is so it’s easy to connect to the other legs! Then, just flip it over and attach the top –

This is nice because there’s no screw holes in the top.

She opted to use pocket holes (optional) for attaching the bottom shelf boards.

There is alot of shelf boards, so this will be the most time consuming part.  Just hang in there and get it done!

Here it is unfinished.
