Wow what a great idea! and nicely done.
this is just awesome!
Love this. Very creative and out of the box thinking.Endless possibilities for different looking endproducts.This should make the top 10 list for 2012!
Thanks.Indeed, you can make any table top to you like!Design yours here http://colorpx.com/?p=2048&size=1 (or on/in any other pixel art website/software)
On the US Lego website, the Lego 2x2 bricks are .15 cents each. Multiply that by the 7176 bricks used and you have a bill of over a thousand USD just for the Lego.Maybe the poster can say what this cost, but it would seem to be WAY too much for what it is.
Click on his link for cost break down in Euros, at the bottom of the post where he says: See HERE for details how I did it.
People pay a lot more than $1,000 for a kitchen table. Assuming this thing is sturdy, it's a unique option.
My total cost where €765,07.From that €472,49 is Lego.See my blog for a complete breakdown of the costs.For cheap Lego you go to the Bricklink website.
I would have never guessed it was legos at first glance!--Reading via the NuffnangX app.
Is the glass secured down in any way? Or are there any edges to keep it from sliding off? I can't tell.
The glass is not secured.But because of the weight of the glass (25KG) it's hard to move and as it fits perfectly u move the table before you move the glass.But for safety the glass is tempered, to make sure u do not hurt yourself if it breaks.
It's beautiful! Your own art instalment in your dining room! I guess Lego lovers will see the attraction immediately. Definitely does not seem like you got it from Ikea lol. And love the detail of even finishing off with a proper edging pattern too. Very well designed. Of course, if Lego were to sell something like this themselves, it would cost a lot more than it did for you to make it. The amount time it takes to put that much Lego together for a start would amount to some considerable labour cost to start with!
Thanks!I took me 8 hours to put al the Lego together. What did not help was that I wanted all the blocks to be in the same direction. (See http://tinyurl.com/8pvsecv)
Awesome. Dude you Rule. Period.
Hi,I have a few questions :1. Did you buy the Torsby frame alone or with the top (on ikea website it comes together)? 2. Why didn't you use the Torsby top instead of the multiplex? does it coas less?3. How did you fix the multiplex to the frame?4. how do you fix the legos to the multiplex?I kind of guess your answers (like probably the weight of the glass top keeps everything on place), but I am not sure, so it's better to ask :)thatnks for the inspiration.
1. I bought only the frame. This is possible because Ikea offers 2 different table tops for the Torsby frame. Each item is packed and priced separately.2. Yes it cost less. The frame was only €81. With the top it would have cost me €179. The multiplex was only €29,49.3. Brackets (http://tinyurl.com/c6q8xyw) and screws. These prevent the top from moving sideways. Currently u can still lift up the top. If that proves to be problematic I will drill holes in the frame at the points where the frame is allready open to attach the legs. (See Torsby frame instuctions http://tinyurl.com/8npaf4x) and put in some scews.4. I did not fix it. All the lego is attached to trough the use of 32x32 baseplates (http://tinyurl.com/9467tm8). These baseplates just lay on the multiplex. Friction prevents the baseplates from moving.Funny fact:While buying the frame, I triggered the alarm of the self service checkout machine. A Ikea employee had to verify that I was only buying the frame and not sneaking out (stealing) a free top. :o)
Thank you for the quick and detailed reply! I did good asking, otherwise i was going to mess up...i am so going to do this.
Cool. I would love to see your result when it's finished.If you have anymore questions feel free to ask me here, on my blog or email me at placebo.rulez (at) gmail.com
but where did you get those chairs please
They are called Ridge JBY.I bought them here:http://www.fundesign.nl/Shop/SALE/Sale/Eetkamerstoel-Ridge-JBY-met-armleuningen.aspx?u=53&k=230I even found a coupon for an extra 10% discount on the internet :o)
Thank you.upholstered Bauhaus - nice ideaInteresting site
Having problems commenting but if this gets through - This is fantastic. Great idea. Well done.
The lego dining table is wonderful. Know all about it
Amazing idea, and I have to say you have a fantastic eye for detail. The perfectionist in me loves that all the Lego-bricks are facing the same way. If I ever have the opportunity of spending such money on a dining table, I wouldn't think twice about it!
Great table where did you gey the mutiplex table top?
At the local hardware store (Praxis.nl)
