Hacker help: Coffee to Dining convertible table?





Materials: unknown

Description: I’m looking to build a coffee/dining convertible table. Convertible furniture is becoming more appealing with smaller condos, but the prices are ridiculous. I think we can do better.

What I’m looking to accomplish is a table like this one (pics above).

Any initial thoughts are welcome!

    It looks like Bertrand found the right piece. Now you need to find two friends to buy the other two items and then the price will be reasonable for a “hack”.

    My parents had a lift coffee table like Anonymous #2 posted, it worked with metal arms and springs to keep it from slamming down.

    Honestly, if you go with the idea Bertrand posted, I think card table legs would be sturdier.

    You could buy the Norden and turn it on its side for a coffee table and put it upright when you want a dining table.

  5. This is perfect for the small space we have at home. At least a dining table would not occupy much of our space.

    What a neat idea, I hate clutter so think this is a great idea

    You could by fe 2 lack cofeetables, and attach the legs of the second table to the first by using hinges.

    Marek, I’ve been meaning to reverse-engineer the same table for quite a while now… and I also live in Toronto. If you’re serious about this, please get in touch and let’s see if we can work on this together!

    I was looking for the same kind of table as you and found this. Hope this will help you.

    There are several Bjursta tables that have extendable leaves. One is 36″ square before opening, another 27 x 19. You could shorten the legs, and though it wouldn’t have the raised height in the “popup” may well give you the function you are looking for.

    I know this is an old thread but did you ever build the table? This is something I’m looking. Coffee table convertible to dining table
