Easy made conference table

Materials: 3x Vika Amon tabletops 1x Galant table legs (only the table legs not the tabletop), 1x Chipboard (it should be a bit smaller than the size of the three tabletops)

Description: Why are we hacking? We are a new company in Denmark and needed some furniture to fill our office. As a entrepreneurial company it was not necessary to have expensive designer furniture filling up our office, however, we would like some good looking furniture that fulfills our needs. Where else to go but IKEA!

What to do?
1. The chipboard was put underneath the 3 tabletops and screwed together.
2. Afterwards we screwed the table legs to both sides/ends of the tabletops.
3. Voila! It turns into our new conference table.

    Hmm.. why not asking your local carpenter to cut a nice fibreboard in exactly your wished size. same price – nicer look! hacks are hacks when you have smart efforts and less costs than comparable solutions,or?

    did you glue the tabletops together before screwing to chip board?

    What size table top did you use? I’ve been considering doing this exact same thing except instead of the chipboard, building a frame out of metal conduit pipe.
