No.45 Utility Table -Inspired By...Week

I'm not sure if this piece can be termed "inspired by". Maybe "literal copy with a twist" is more accurate.


Yes, those are utility poles, though not real ones as that would make one huge table. I can see this table made either completely clean and stylized or dirty and real. Maybe a set? Wood species and finish, or lack there of, would be dependent upon which style I built in.

Grab a pencil and paper and hold onto those drawings, because the new Furniture Design Blog will be rolling out soon. Stay tuned here for the latest.

Some sort of blue/green glass bits that the glass sits on (with suitable clear rubbery stuff (sorry to get so technical :)) would be a nice touch.

Carrying the theme through with those braces being wire and the legs at the bottom looking they were made from the metal of a transformer.

Would it be overkill to put little LEDs in the blue/green glass bits under the table top?

All fabulous ideas! Love LED's but not sure how they would go over here.

Yeah, I meant to add a smiley after that last statement, forgot to throw it in :)

I knew what you were saying. I too should have added a smiley : )

Ares Folding Utility Table from Bizarkdeal

Perfect solution for camping. I was looking for a small camping table that would also fit inside of my sedan. I removed the middle seats from my bus and use this table, with the legs lowered and adjusted for the kids to use inside of the bus. I like that the surface has great construction. It is very sturdy once set up. Its Exactly the right size for yard sales and crafting. I put the legs half way down to use for sewing in front of the TV or for eating in the living room. Light weight and easy to manage. Slides under the couch/bed for easy storage. Overall, it Fits easily behind the seat for transport. It's the perfect table for my family! It has the capacity of a narra-made table. Doesn't consume too much space. I definitely recommend.
