New Side Tables

Posted by on March 29, 2008 in Life | 1 comment

My most recent construction project was building side tables to go beside our new couch. When I go out looking for furniture in our area, I just can never find much of what I am looking for design wise. Since I wasn’t able to find the type of tables I was looking for, I designed them after our desk “legs” that we bought from Ikea. We finally have real side tables and not some boxes or make shift table.


Once it starts to be nice outside again, I need to stain and polyacrylic the tables. Once I do, I will post new pictures.

Some material details about the side tables:

  • 18″ x 24″ laminated pine (3 pcs)
  • 12″ x 24″ laminated pine (2 pcs)
  • 15″ x 23″ laminated pine (shelf)
  • 1 1/2″ rotating plastic wheels (4)
  • #6 x 1 1/2″ flat head phillips wood screws (12) (to attach wood pieces together)
  • #4 x 3/4″ flat head phillips wood screws (16) (to attach wheels)

  1. I definitely enjoy these new additions to our home (despite recent injury of my own fault). I’m looking forward to their new look and will still fight the fight to keep the little “fliptocs” from blocking my reach to these end tables. Why must they *always* lay on the arm of the couch just as I need to reach for my drink?
