Once I lately started researching craft tables for our new place, I shortly realized that there aren’t a ton of unpolluted, trendy craft desk choices on the market–particularly ones with a taller peak to comfortably accommodate standing whereas crafting. (As a result of let’s be critical, crafting isn’t all the time a sitdown pastime!) So I made a decision to take issues into my very own arms and modify pre-made elements to create a spacious, trendy craft desk.
The 34″ peak is ideal counter stool or standing peak, and I really like the juxtaposition of the graceful lacquered prime and the unfinished wooden noticed horses. To not point out you possibly can construct it in an hour when you’ve gathered all of your supplies!
- 2 unfinished Home Depot Saw Horses, 33″ large x 32″ tall
- 1 pre-made IKEA Linnmon tabletop, 29.5″ extensive x fifty nine″ lengthy
- 4 three-1/four″ screws
- hand noticed
- measuring tape
- electrical drill
Should you use the noticed horses I used from Residence Depot, you’ll need to reduce the width down, as a result of they’re simply barely wider than the 29.5″ prime (Or you would simply purchase a wider tabletop!). Use a hand noticed to chop all of the horizontal items of the noticed horses down 6″ earlier than following the producer’s directions to assemble them.
Measure 6″ from every finish of the noticed horses and predrill holes for the screws. You’ll drill four holes complete, 2 holes on every noticed horse.
Flip the tabletop the wrong way up, so the underside is dealing with upward and discover the midpoint of the brief aspect. Measure and mark 9″ inward from the brief finish. That is the mark that you simply’ll middle your sawhorses on. Repeat with different finish of the highest.
Arrange the noticed horses parallel to at least one one other, so the tops of the noticed horses are roughly 38″ aside. Middle the tabletop on them, and regulate the place of the sawhorses in order that they match as much as the middle marks on the tabletop created in step three. Connect the noticed horses to the highest by drilling the screws into the noticed horses’ pre-drilled holes.
Pull up a stool and let the crafting start!
