Build a 3D puzzle couch table
3D puzzle furniture is for people who want to play with their furniture. It is made of little puzzle pieces and everyone can build it. In this tutorial I teach you how to build all the puzzle pieces for the 3D puzzle couch table.
We wanted to design furniture for people who want to build their own furniture. This puzzle furniture is easily movable and will not take too much space. This is very good in case you want to move or you`d like to storage it.

Step 1: Cutting the Puzzle Pieces
- Cut 41 pieces for the table top. 30 x shorter (1020 x 30 x 10) and 11 x longer (450 x 30 x 10) puzzles.
- Cut 4 pieces for table top frame.
Step 2: Milling the Table Top Puzzle Pieces
Step 3: Milling the Table Top Frame and Legs
You do not necessary have to own a milling router for milling the parts. It is also possible to mill with the saw or by hand with the chisel. We are using a milling router and I had to build for every piece a jig.
Step 4: Sanding All the Pieces
Sand before taking the puzzle pieces out of the jig. You will save time by doing so.
Then sand all the pieces one by one.
This is the step where we allowed ourselves to be very creative with tools by using a wrench for smoothing the corners and sculpting the wood. This is the heart of the Japanese lock. If you have a better idea to sculpt the wood then please leave us a comment!
Step 6: Finishing the Pieces
We use the seamless oil for finishing. But you can also use polisher for more shinier effect.
Step 7: Assembling the Frame and the Legs
If you have done everything precisely then it should not be difficult to put all the pieces together
If there is some impreciseness then use a sanding paper to fix them and try again.
Step 8: Table Top Puzzleing
Assemble the table top by gently using a hammer. Be careful because you don`t want to break the puzzle pieces.
