Extendable Lack Bistro Table

Materials: Lack side tables, found/repurposed wood, velcro, scews

Description: Using an unfinished headboard my father was no longer working on, I added trim to three sides leaving the fourth open to allow for an extension.

The top is attached to the top of one Lack table, screwed to a 2′x2′ piece of plywood underneath the top of the Lack table.

The Lack tables are held together by velcro (works remarkably well as long as you don’t lean heavily on them – fine for dining and preparing food).

All the wood was recycled from my father’s wood shop. Just had to purchase the two Lack side tables and a couple of Franklin stools.
