Lack Leg Switch, Taller Lack Tv Stand


Materials: LACK TV unit and LACK side table

Description: I found that by switching the legs on the Lack end table and the TV stand I could get the height I wanted for the TV stand and have a little table for my stereo which wouldn’t fit inside the Lack TV stand.

    Hows the stability. Does it wobble left and right much? My TV is much larger (and heavier) so I’d be concerned about it shifting.

  2. Jen says:

    Ahh never mind, just found a report elsewhere that it’s 10″ tall without the legs. Since Lack slabs are usually 2″, then presumably the height of the opening is 6”.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Jen says:

    So how tall is this overall, exactly? I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, but I’m not sure how tall the TV stand part is minus the original legs.

    Wow, that’s nice. If only I thought of that about two years ago, it would’ve been perfect.

    Great post.
