    Charming! Reminds of the 3D Printer framework done with LACK. Personally, I think this product is among the most hack-friendly, long live lack! hehe.

    Oh, this is smart! I have a table like this, it’s great, but a bit old. Maybe it’s time to upgrade it.

    Great idea! I love that you used the scrap wood to attach the legs to the second table, makes it much more sturdy.
