Susi’s Bulletproof Coffee Table

Modern Legs is happy to relay some images and comments from another happy customer! We just received some details about the build and some photos to share in our inbox this weekend. To surprise his wife, Susi’s husband bought four 16 inch square bar hairpin legs to add to a coffee table he had been planning for a few months. He came across two solid oak table leaves from a dining room table, and knew he’d like to turn it into a new piece of do it yourself furniture. The wood was already sanded, stained and in beautiful condition, so the last step was getting a frame to mount the wood on, and four simple hairpin legs to tie everything together.

Because the wood was in two pieces, he used a steel frame for better stability, and adding the steel hairpin legs was the perfect final touch. The coffee table was a big hit with Susi, and since the table is solid oak and steel, Susi calls it her “beautiful bulletproof table”. We’re glad to hear she’s happy, and we’re excited to see another successful project made with Modern Legs.
