Hi, it’s Amy from Hertoolbelt back with another develop strategy. Are you Prepared For Some FOOTBALL??? It’s that time of year again! I’ve got the best project for the ‘arm chair quarterback’ in your home, a Sofa Arm Table. The Sofa Arm Table easily slips onto the arm of your sofa/couch and offers you a flat surface to spot your drink and game time snacks, with a tiny pocket for the remote.
How to Construct a DIY Sofa Arm Table
Measure the width of the arm on your couch or sofa.
Also decide how far down you want the sofa arm table to go and how deep you want the table. For this sofa, the arm width was 9 1/4″ (so the prime piece is 10 three/four″), I wanted it do go down about 8″ and be 14″ deep.
- three/four″ x wide enough for your prime piece x eight′ board
- 1 1/four″ pocket hole screws/typical screws
- wood glue
- sand paper
- stain/best coat
Cut List – customize according to your sofa
- 3/4″ x 10 3/4″ x 14″ pine board
- three/four″ x 8″ x 14″ pine board
- three/four″ x 7 1/four″ x 14″ pine board
- 3/4″ x three″ x 14″ pine board
- three/4″ x 3″ x 14″ pine board
Reduce all of the pieces out for the sofa arm table. On an inside edge of the eight″ and 7 1/four″ pieces, drill pocket holes to attach to the prime piece.
Think about sanding all of your wood pieces prior to assembly.
Use wood glue and 1 1/four″ pocket hole screws and attach the eight″ and 7 1/4″ boards to the prime board.
Pre-drill countersink holes in one particular of the 3″ boards. Use wood glue and 1 1/4″ minimum screws to attach the remote storage feature.

Let the glue dry and remove excess glue.
Sand the sofa arm table until it is smooth, finishing with 120-150 grit sandpaper. Stain or paint the table as desired. I applied a coat of pre-stain wood conditioner, then applied a coat of General Finishes Java gel stain. After the stain dried, I applied a coat of polyurethane.
