Spindly Legs

The Spinning Coffee Table is a misnomer since it’s the legs that actually spin. Designed to be fun yet functional, each leg is made of up blocks supported by a center rod. The blocks come in all sorts of colors and shapes. Make the table as high or low as you want. It’s totally eco-friendly too because it’s made of reclaimed materials like wood, plastic, and paper.

What would have been really cool is if I could play Jenga with those spindly legs.

    AAArrrghhhh. This would drive me mad. I’d have to turn all the bits so they made a neat pattern, It’d be like seeing a picture askew on a wall.

    The table looks nice but the legs are a bit weird. What about the stability?

    HA : ) glad to see my design here

    cha0tic, yes, it is tricky that you have to play it so that you can make a right pattern : )

    ConcepTrends, I tested the structure with static load , the stability depends on the screw type and the block surface size. And I found out 1/4 ‘ steel T-nut & screw and blocks of 3’by3’ met the coffee table standard. If more strength needed, in increase the screw diamiter or the block size.

    All these materials are from a trash can in a woodshop……..materials are wasted everyday

    It’s definitely an interesting concept, to be able to personalize your own table. I do agree that this would drive me mad and I can’t really imagine an environment where this table would fit.

  • Really similar to my UnsTable concept, which has featured in dozens of design websites a few months ago…even the color is the same.

    It’s not the best looking but it looks fun. ‘Cept, I’d be annoyed with all the pieces and just throw them all out the window.
