Slide-on armchair coffee table

Super 

Quick little build today. I made a slide on armchair coffee table to hold my coffee cup or glass of wine.

I use a cheap little cutting board and perspex and a few screws. I just bent the perspex to fit the width of the armchair..

Re: Slide on Armchair Small Coffee Table

What a cracker of a project @Super66! Love it! I've never really seen a product that serves that purpose so effectively and that is also aesthetically pleasing. That is really neat, I'm super impressed.

 

Any idea what type of timber it is? It's beautiful.

 

Many thanks for sharing. I'm sure you're bound to get plenty of interest as something like this would be useful in most of our homes.

 

Well done.

 

Mitchell

Nice! These would be something I'm sure a lot of people would purchase if you were to sell them. Where did you grab the perspex from in that shape?

Brilliant idea @Super66!

 

Came out really great and the perspex makes it look like it is floating.

Hi Remarka6le

The trouble making them the sell, all lounge chair armrests are different sizes. The perspex was flat and I just used a heat gun to make it warm enough to bend the right size for my lounge.

Super Thanks Katie

I was thinking what can I use as I only have 2 boards and could not match the wood and then I thought of perspex, I is there but its not, all at the same time.

Cheers Dave
