Hi @NikCronin,

 

Let us know what your needs are for the table and I'm sure one of our amazing community members would be happy to give you a hand designing something. We're here to help. Perhaps you might start with the dimensions of the tabletop you need and how much storage you need?

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle Table

Hello @Alx 

 

A warm welcome to Bunnings Workshop! That is an ingenious way of setting the pieces out. My wife loves doing puzzles and it is always a chore to put the remaining pieces away and having to re figure where the remaining goes again the following day. Using the drawer systems you can easily tuck them away and carry on from where you left the following day without having to re-figure things out. I'm sure our community members will be inspired by this idea, specially those that love to do jigsaw puzzles. Thank you for sharing this diy project and we look forward to your future projects here on workshop.

 

Cheers,

Red

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle Table

Hi @NikCronin,

 

I've put together this graphic to give you a basic idea of how something like this could go together. Obviously, sizing and materials will vary widely depending on what size of puzzle table you'd like to build.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions about the construction.

 

Mitchell

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle Table

Hi Mitchell 

Thats exactly how I made it. Great minds think alike, fools seldom differ. I added to swivel legs at the back to tilt the table at an angle. Raised the back (as you look at the table) about 40-50mm. I added a wire frame (old coat hanger) as per the picture to make it easy to see the jigsaw picture. Drilled a couple of holes on the swivel legs to accommodate the wire. Drawer pulls are plastic golf tees.
