Building an Infinity Cube Table

Building an Infinity Cube Table

Woodworker Jonathan Katz-Moses shows off a really cool piece of furniture he built that seems to defy logic and gravity. Its structure was tricky to engineer and build, but the end result is something we’d be thrilled to have in our living room.

DIY Concrete and LEGO Table

DIY Concrete and LEGO Table

Maker Chris Salomone loved the idea of river and ocean tables. But he was sick of seeing the same materials – glass and wood – used over and over again. So he made a river table that uses concrete as the land and LEGO pieces as the river.

@ Roll-out Table

@ Roll-out Table

Designed by Marcus Ødegaard Voraa, this prototype dining table provides a unique way to expand its tabletop. Rather than requiring leaves to be added or removed, simply slide the end of its base and unroll more or less wood for its top. There’s no indication that it’s gone into production, but you can always contact its creator.

Making a Home Theater Coffee Table

Making a Home Theater Coffee Table

While flat screen TVs are all the rage these days, sometimes a projector is still a better solution – especially if you want a huge image. Builder Laura Kampf shows off a neat design for a coffee table that has a cubby for concealing a projector neatly beneath its lid.

Movie Reel Side Table

Movie Reel Side Table

The perfect side table for any home theater is made using vintage Goldberg Brothers 35mm film reels. Its center pedestal is made from poly plastic, painted to match the reels in silver, gold, or bronze, and the 20″ glass top provides a smooth surface. Stands 24″ tall, and requires some basic assembly.

Furniture Illusions

Arcade Sofa

Harkening back to the shape of classic arcade machines, Harow’s compact sofa looks like a great place to chill out and play video games at home. It can be made with custom artwork, and custom sizes, and is made from recycled wood, steel and velvet-covered cushions.

Respawn-900 Gaming Recliner

Respawn-900 Gaming Recliner

Unlike other gaming chairs designed to sit at a desk, the Respawn-900 is meant for your game room. It offers a racing style bolstered back, a reclining leg support, wide armrests, and a drink holder. It reclines up to 135º, swivels 360º, and holds adults up to 275 lb. Our only complaint – we wish it included a lumbar support pillow.

DIY Reclaimed Wood Bench

DIY Reclaimed Wood Bench

Ollari’s shows us how to take slats of wood from a rickety old door and pallets to create a nifty new piece of outdoor furniture. If you put your mind to it, it’s amazing what you can achieve with a saw, some screws, and glue. We dig the burnt look of the finished piece.

Fire Cave Coffee Table

Fire Cave Coffee Table

Woodworker Lignum has made some pretty cool furniture over the years, and this build is definitely among his coolest. He created this table by laminating together blocks of wood then scorching it with a torch to give it the look that a fire burnt its insides out. We imagine it smells like a campfire too.

Camper Van Bed

Camper Van Bed

Circu’s made-to-order bed is designed to look like Volkswagen’s Type 22 camper van. It’s mostly made of fiberglass and palisander wood and comes with storage compartments, a TV, a fridge, a sofa, a secretary desk and the bed itself. It’s also nearly full scale.

Making a Chair from Spray Foam

Making a Chair from Spray Foam

That expanding spray foam insulation can be really useful for filling gaps and cracks, but it’s also really nasty stuff. The King of Random decided to see if they could use a bunch of cans of Great Stuff to make usable (and really ugly) furniture. Somebody should try and build a house out of this goo.

Eureka Ergonomic Z1-S Gaming Desk

Eureka Ergonomic Z1-S Gaming Desk

One of the slicker looking desks we’ve seen for PC gamers, the Z1-S features dynamic “Z”-shaped metal legs, a carbon-fiber inspired surface, and has built in blue LED lighting, a headphone hook, drink holder, and a stand for controllers and games. PC cart and monitor arms sold separately.

DIY Herringbone Plywood Table

DIY Herringbone Plywood Table

OSO DIY created this stunning coffee table using baltic birch plywood for its construction. But rather than attempt to hide the layers of the wood, he built it to show off its endgrain in a beautiful herringbone pattern. We really love the way the grain looks on the edges and the legs.

DIY Concrete Chair

DIY Concrete Chair

Most furniture is made primarily from wood or metal, but HomeMadeModern’s funky, angular chair is crafted from steel-reinforced concrete. He made the chair’s mold using strips of melamine, hot-glued, and sealed with silicone caulk. By filling the inner core with foam insulation, he was able to dramatically reduce its weight.

Making a Wood and Rope Chair

Making a Wood and Rope Chair

Woodworker lignum shows off another cool carpentry project. This time, he created the frame for a chair by bending layers of laminated wood slats using a custom-built form. After cutting, sanding, and assembling the pieces, he wrapped the finished frame with hemp rope to create a pliable seat and back.
