Coffee table with wheels

Do it yourself table with wheels, built from scrap.

What have used:

  • Carpet
  • Plywood or other wood
  • Circular Saw
  • Wood 4 × 4
  • 4 top table leg plates
  • Bolts hangar ¼
  • 4 wheel
  • fixing bolts ¼ inch
  • Sandpaper
  • Mancha
  • Clear polyurethane
  • Tempered glass

Step 1 – Measure and cut

Based on the size of the carpet (25 ¼ x 34 ¼ inches), he needed a table base and a frame. For the base, I cut a rectangle of a ping-pong old. I did 7 ¼ inches long and wider than 3 ¼ inch carpet. (You may not have a ping-pong of junk out there, so it uses plywood.) Then cut 4 pieces of plywood to cover the surface of ping-pong exposed, and under the carpet .

Since all measurements are based on a rug that is not a standard size, there are a lot of fractions. It could all have been more even if from a standard element. They can easily adapt and build this around Navajo blanket, a piece of carpet or other textile.

Step 2 – Cut and Attach the legs

A good height for a coffee table is 18 inches, but remember that we are adding wheels to the legs and we have to take into account the thickness of the table (1 ½ inches). The wheels are 6 inches high, so they cut the legs on April 4 × 4 to 11 centimeters. At one end of each leg, mark the center point, drill a pilot hole and drive a hanger bolt ¼ inches on center. This screw thread at one end of the wood screw. The other end protrudes machine threaded to screw into the bracket will be installed at the bottom of the table.

At the bottom of the table, mark the dimensions of the carpet. We will establish the legs even with the corners of the carpet, so you’re insertion from the edge of the table with the same proportion as the top. Set an upper leg of the table in each plate sharp corners.

Screw the feet in the upper plates.

Step 3 – Place the wheels

With the table still upside down, setting the wheels at the bottom of the legs and mark the hole locations. Drill pilot holes for the screws ¼ inch. Secure wheels with locking bolts ¼ inch.

I used four-wheel lock, but you can use two locking and two non-blocking. Do not skip the locks altogether, or roll the table when you put your feet up.

Step 4 – Installing skirt and validity

The skirt will help you keep safe the table legs and give some visual weight. Cut two lengths of 1 × 6 to match the short distance between the legs (22 ¾ inches) and 2 to match the long distance (39 ½ inch). Screw skirt instead.

If you want a rack for remote controls, etc., cut a piece of wood to fit between the two front legs. Connect with supports 6 inches below the table.

Step 5 – Attach the frame and Orientation

Turn the right side table and put the rug in place. Set the frame pieces on the carpet, so pinch instead. Screw down to the surface of ping-pong. Facing the perimeter of the table, and the platform, with a strip of plywood or other material to fill and hide the edge where the frame meets the base of the table.

Step 6 – Sanding, Dyeing and Finishing

It is a table, so get some rough wear. Sanded everything and since it is made of various types of waste, stain so all parties. When the stain dry, finish with at least 2 coats of clear polyurethane.

Step 7 – Install the glass

When the cop is dry, measure the exposed surface of the carpet area. Take these dimensions to a glass shop and order a piece of tempered glass to fit (24 ½ x 33 ½ inches). It will cost a little more tempered, but do not want to break down when your drink is established. I was surprised to find that only delayed me around $ 30.

With the glass in place, it’s done. Of course, since this it is primarily made from scrap, which can be adapted according to their available materials and taste.
