LF: Table for my tables

    Ok, so it looks like the one I wanted to buy is not available. So who has gone to a store like Ikea or home depot etc and found something suitable? I have heard of people using the jerker, would the extra shelf above hold 2 studio monitors?

    Is there anything else out there ? I am not about to try and make one as it would be lopsided and would fall apart as soon as I placed anything on it.

    I know there was someone here that made some nice custom ones, but i dont have 350+ to spend.

    Thanks :)

    i built mine for 150 bucks. Three tables and shelving underneath for amp, records.
    Be creative and try making one yourself.
    It can be rewarding

    I have one that you might be interested in. I'm going to be moving end of the month and i'd like to get rid of it as I won't have space for it. So it'll be CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! I don't have any pics of it right now but i'll see if I can get a digi cam.

    I use the saw-horses and thick glass from ikea with great success.
    Total cost, about $150. It's portable if it needs to go somewhere, but sturdy and classy looking in a living room (painted the saw-horses a la pier one styles).

    I've done the exact same thing. And you can raise the glass as high you need cuz the legs are adjustable. It doesn't look too bad.

    I've been wanting to build something more custome / enclosed for a while but I've got the hammer skills of a chimp.

    This would be a good option. You can set the height of the table to anything you want. Get the swivel monitor shelves to hold your speakers if you want more speration than the top shelf will allow.

    Re: Re: LF: Table for my tables

    I looked at it while I was at ikea , but it didnt look like it would hold both tables and mixer without having them battle style. but i didnt measure either :)

    So went to ikea and found this:


    Perfect hight, width (can hold 3 1200's and a djm 600) , and depth!

    It took me about 1hr and a half to put it together. Nice and solid.
