Simple Table - Rugged

RUGGED - the name says it all. this desk frame looks like it could support a tank! It's beefy, DIY feel earned it a place at O'Reilly Publishing's Maker Faires. This is a desk frame that makes a statement. Whether you are building a desk, a display table or work bench, RUGGED will be give you a strong, industrial base on which to build.

How Does This Work?

It's Simple! You provide the desktop and we provide the base. Just about any flat, rectangular surface can be made into a desk. Go on a creative journey and find a desktop that works for your environment. Go green and upcycle an old piece of material, or buy something new like this simple desktop from IKEA (pictured above).

We have based our desk kits leg to be approx 100mm from the table top edge.

If you want to choose a different edge dimension, simply double it and take that from the length of the 'width' and 'depth' tubes.

1) Start by inputting the size of your desktop - Select the tube length- deduct 200mm (rounding up to the nearest 100mm) from the overall dimensions of your desk top.

For example if your desk top is 2000mm wide x 600mm deep you would select tube lengths of 1800mm & 400mm.

3) Select the type of footing you would like on the table.

  • Plastic Plug

    Plastic Plugs - smooth, integrated look that protects the floor.

  • Flange

    Flanges - bold, wide bases that can be attached to the floor.

That's it! We will send you the tube and components and you can assemble and attach the unit to the bottom of your desktop.

How Do I Assemble the tube Base?

This couldn't be easier. Download your installation instructions here. The only tool needed to attach the fittings to the table base is an allen key that will be included in the kit. Attach the table base to the desktop with some screws and you are good to go! We told you this was simple!
