As you know I am an avid crafter and I was in need of a counter height crafting table after heavy rain flooded my craft space and ruined most of the furniture I had.

I knew that I wanted a custom craft table with open storage spaces as well as storage shelves.

I wanted something with a large surface to work on and plenty of storage space for my craft room.

And looking all over the internet I didn’t find anything I liked with the storage options that I needed with as much storage as I wanted.

I decided to make a DIY table because the best ideas come from myself. Even though have a dedicated craft room inside my home, I wanted to make something that kept the chaos of crafting down. And I have plans for you!

One of the first things that I did was make a list of the things that I wanted on my craft table. These are the things I wanted

  • Something that held the overflow craft supplies without things looking a mess.
  • I wanted to have a counter-height table.
  • I needed to make sure that it was an affordable-priced craft table.
  • I wanted the top of the table to have a large work surface that I could use in the video and you only see the table in the shots.
  • And of course, I wanted it to have caster wheels so that I could store it against the wall, but pull it out into the open spaces when working on it.

My DIY craft table with storage turned out amazing. And in all honesty, it would work out perfectly also for small rooms too, because all of your crafting supplies are right inside of your counter height craft table and you don’t have to suck up too much more if you craft in small spaces.

This large craft table is the perfect place to do all of your crafting projects. You will love it when it’s done! Here is everything you need to make it and the instructions!




  1. Put all of your shelving together, Make sure to follow the step-by-step instructions that come in the box. Set them aside.
  2. Using your cubes, lay them side by side on top of your precut melamine board. Essentially the way you want it to look in the end. I left 4 inches on either side of mine and 4 inches on the back. I made the front flush with the cubes.
  3. Add the Depth stop to your 1/2-inch drill bit. Drill down a little under 1/2 inch.Add the female side of the couplers into the holes. Use wood glue or another type of glue inside the holes. I used UV resin. Set the melamine aside.
  4.  Add wheels to 2 of the cubes. This is the under side of the table. Now attach the other set of cubes to the top of the 1’s wheels using the supplied casters.
  5. Connect half cubes to the Mobile Chest (drawers). Arrange the cubes and lock all of the wheels.
  6. Flip the top for the craft desk over your assembled cubes. This is a large tabletop, and it’s heavy. It’s a great idea to get some help.
  7. Use a clamp to keep the shelving aligned, and secure each 1 of them together with the other side of the casters. (if you have drilled too far, see notes)
  8. Use your brackets to attach the units together so that they stay together when you move them.
  9. Now load up your craft table with storage!
