Lack tables that appear to float

Materials: Lack table

Description: Saw the legs of the table on the desired length. Glue the legs on the underside of the table, off course it is best to glue the side with the biggest area. Note that there is a tradeoff between stability and appearance of floating. I have chosen to position the rear legs as far as possible to the rear but a little of the side. The front legs are mounted approximately 10 cm of the two sides.

    Nice idea! I can imagine a big wall-mounted TV and the receiver, PS3 and stuff on these floating boards under the tv.
