Open Desk Cafe Table

I just finished putting what I think is the last coat of polyurethane on my cafe table. I’ll do a full post about the experience, but here’s some pictures just because I’m excited

They say that the uneven sides make it so you can use it as 3 person table where everyone gets a big side, a 4 person table where someone gets the kinda medium sized side, or a 5 person table if there is someone one each edge. When I looked at the pictures I thought that was a silly idea but in person I can totally imagine it working and think it’s a fantastic design


I love it!! There truly are some wonderful designers at OD!! Would be awesome to get one of the designers to contribute a Maslow build of some sort. Would be great pub for both.


Here are some more pictures. I’m really pleased with how it came out.

I had one big issue which was that when I went to assemble it it there were two slots which were WAY too big. After some measuring I realized that the design was intended to be cut from 25mm (1inch) plywood and I cut if from 3/4 (18mm). I added some 1/4 inch shims and you can’t tell unless you crawl under the table :grimacing:

Overall I’m SUPER happy with how it came out :+1:


Super nice result! :clap: The asymmetry of the top adds a beautiful touch.

This table came out great! Do you have the design files for it?

Unfortunately I don’t :slightly_frowning_face:…I didn’t save them because I didn’t expect OpenDesk to take their files down.
