DIY How-To: Simple Table Base

Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.  The same principle applies here, teach a man/woman to build a table base and they will eat fish on that table for a lifetime… or something like that.  Anyway, with minimal tools, effort, and time anyone can make their very own table.  First find what you are going to use for the top, this could be anything flat such as a door, reclaimed wood, or a salvaged table top.  Next all you have to do is build the base and scale the measurements up or down depending on the size of table top you choose.  After you make the first one you will want to do another and another, its easy!  Many of these materials can be found on a regular basis at the Habitat ReStore.  Click on the Step by Step Instructions to make your super simple table base. A variety of repurposed table ideas can also be found on our Pinterest page.

If you have made a table from something reused we would love to see it! Share it with us on
