Double Lack

Materials: 2 lack table

For the first table, cut the four legs (about 10cm less), for the second one, cut just one leg. That’s all, you can nest them as you wish.

    very clever…you could expand on the idea by adding more tables at different heights

    It´s brillant.

    I like the idea of this but the only thing i would do differently would perhap be to attach the top and bottom table through the center on the bottom table (into the leg) using a bearing screw to allow the swivle without the tables comeing apart.

    Great idea, looks dead modern and contemporary!

    Thirded on loving the idea. :)

    Also, I agree with ddgiant — if the tables aren’t glued or otherwise affixed in position (fair enough, if you want to be able to squish them close together to get them out of the way), those $1 sticky felt tabs on the short leg would be the way to go.

    I love the idea and it looks great,but you might want to put some felt or something under the leg of the upper so that it does not damage the lower.
