Long table for interior design studio
Sturdy home office desks, workstations and studio tables can be quite hard to source, especially when you have specific dimensions you need to work with. A lot of the times people just find it easier to build their own studio desks for their home.
Here’s what Wendy has to say:
“I built the table in 2005 and I’m still happy with it. The table is my own design: I used extra holders in the middle and painted the MDF top in white.”
A studio workstation that works for you
Wendy used a modified version of our Rugged Table Frame Kit to construct this DIY desk.
She used 90° Side Outlet Tees (21 Type Fittings) for the upper corners of the table and then flanges to support the table top.
The table measures 3m x 1.2m.
Wendy decided not to paint the floorboards in this room and she went for an industrial, distressed look throughout. Galvanised steel seemed like the perfect material to go with this décor.
Build your own table
Here’s what you need:
- Table with 4 flanges (one for each leg): £238.28
- Table with 4 braked castors (one for each leg): £299.39
Please note that this solution does not include the table top. You will need to source the table top yourself. An inexpensive solution is to use scaffolding boards.
A heavy duty desk
Kee Klamp fittings can help you achieve the industrial look you are going for. If you choose one of these ready available table kits, all you need to add is a table top.
Our desk and table frame kits can hold very heavy table tops: for example, the Rugged frame kit can easily hold a concrete table top.
Just look at these desks that our US colleagues have constructed using various table tops.
