Make a coffee table with beams06 February 2023
@ leloftdagnes is an object designer who loves to combine noble materials such as wood and steel or wood and leather. She imagined a coffee table made up of beams where the amount of the foot is visible on the top of the table.
- 4 beams of 15 cm by 15 cm by 1m20
- 2 gold infinity flat iron 61 cm wide and 40 cm high - E1: 15 cm
- 10 x 30mm screws
- Sanding paper
Choose your beams and make sure they don't twist when they are next to each other. Also, check that there are no splinters or irregularities that could cause injury. If this is the case, spend a few minutes sanding the affected areas using more or less coarse grain paper depending on the roughness.
Tip: for added charm, choose wagon beams that are more rustic and more marked.
Position the infinity flat iron feet straight and in the right direction, ready to use.
Slide the beams one by one into the top space and make sure to center them in relation to the foot.
Tip: if your choice is on different sized beams than those presented here, be careful to also modify the configuration of the foot itself.
Due to the configuration of this coffee table, fixing is not mandatory.
If you have small children (or are used to climbing on your coffee table), we advise you to fix them. This will avoid any possible accident.
There are holes on the crosspiece to fix the beams from below. You can also fix them from above, this will give visible screws. For this, when configuring the foot, you will have to choose the addition of a hole on the top of the foot.
30mm screws are enough. It is not necessary to choose larger screws at the risk of splitting the wood.
Play with the positioning of the feet, aligning them with the beams or tucking them in a few inches. With the same material, there is a lot of configuration by playing on the color and the positioning. In this DIY, we detail the realization of a 2 in 1 piece of furniture: TV stand and dressing table. Discover the steps, in clicking here.
The infinite flat iron foot model, more generally, gives the possibility of creating very different pieces of furniture with the addition of one or more intermediate crosspieces, discover them.
In its purer version, the thin bespoke rectangular leg is designed for rather narrow furniture, i.e. say wide but low or high but shallow. Discover the furniture to create with this model.
