That is a LONG title… but let me ‘splain.
I have some items on my pinterest boards that I have pinned because I want to try and make them… And I am not just talking about desserts or crockpot meals… One pin in particular are these fun little tables that I have been asking Justin to make for me.
In fact I have a few pins of these sweet little Moroccan side tables or hexagon tables… or the mix of the two Hexagonal Moroccan side tables. Click on the image for the source…

Need a closer look.. so do I!
It has great lines, and I love the scale… so that was it, I emailed Sherry and asked if I could make plans based on that table, she said yes… so here ya go!
Moroccan Side Table Plans
List of possible tools:
- circular saw or table saw
- jig saw
- hammer or nail gun
- Kreg Jig(this would be great under the top support to fasten the legs together to the top)
- nail set
- putty knife
- sanding block
- sand paper
- paint supplies
List of materials:
- Wood of you choice. (I personally would make this out of solid wood and stain it)
- MDF if you want to paint it.
- (~200) 1 1/2” finishing nails
- Paint of your choice or stain of your choice
- finishing nails or brads
- wood glue
- wood filler
- The legs of the table can be made from a single piece or two pieces of solid wood. For two, clamp them together and cut out 1/2 of the leg template (shown below). Then glue and screw the upper center seam together from the back side with the kreg jig the pieces together at the top together in the middle.
- The plans were designed for 3/4” thick wood, whether it be MDF of solid wood.
- The material thickness may vary depending on lumber chosen, make adjustments to the plans as needed.
- Below is the patternto cut for the legs. Print this out at 400% from the original size and it will be the right size to transfer to the wood and then be cut out.
- (1) Top support – 16 1/4” hexagon (measured from corner to corner through the center)
- (6) Table legs – 24 1/4” x 9” x 3/4”
- (6) Trim block – 9 7/8” x 3/4” x 3/4”
- (6) Quarter round bottom trim –9 7/8” x 3/4” x 3/4”
- (6) Quarter round top trim – 10 3/4” x 3/4” x 3/4”
- (1) Top center inlay –4 5/8” hexagon
- (12) Top mid inlay– 3 13/16” x 3 3/8”
- (6) Top end inlay –10 3/4” x 3 1/2” x 3/4”
1. Cut the top supportinto a hexagon.
2. Cut table legs to length and width. Remember to miter the edges of the legs at a 30 degree angle on both sides. These edges will be glued and nailed together to form the legs. Print out the pattern and trace the design on the wood to be cut. Cut with a jig saw and sand edges.
3. Attach the other 5 sides together and to the top support.
4. Attach trim blocksflush along the top edge of the legs. This will provide a place for the quarter round trim to attach to.
5. Attach quarter round bottom trim to the underside of the trim block.6. Attach quarter round top trimto the outside of the trim block flush with the top.
7. Attach the top center inlaypiece in the exact middle of the table top support. Align all corners with each other.
8. Attach top mid inlaypieces, butted up against the center inlay. Keep the pieces as exact as you can to the dimensions, so they all fit together properly .
9. Attach top end inlaypieces for the final top of the table. Nail and glue the quarter round to the end pieces for added strength.
