IKEA Tiered Table

For a while I have wanted a new table

as the one I currently used is pretty cramped which makes it awkward doing clients work when I need to sketch designs and produce 3D models. I looked around online and the tables were either too small, expensive or way too big. In addition I preferred to have a tiered table where I can have two monitors sit at the correct height and be able to store things under them.

Step 1: Items and equipment required

  • 1x Drill
  • 1x Ø2mm drill bit
  • 1x Ø10mm drill bit
  • 1x Wrench
  • 1x Philips Screwdriver
  • 2x Capita Brackets
  • 8x screws
  • 2x bolts
  • 2x washers
  • 1x Linnmon table
  • 4x Adil Legs
  • 1x plank of wood to support monitors

Step 2: Step 1 Top shelf assembly

  1. Measure and mark the hole
  2. positions for the base of the Capita brackets.
  3. Drill Ø2mm x 10mm deep pilot holes.
  4. Screw the Captia brackets in place of the top shelf.

Note: I didn’t use the screws that came with the Capita bracket set as they were too long for my shelf. I managed to salvage suitable ones from a broken electric heater.

Step 3: Step 2 Assemble top shelf to table top

  1. To fix the Capita brackets in place you need to drill onto your main table holes wide enough for the bolts.
  2. I measured in 50cm to ensure that I can push the table against the wall.
  3. The distance between the holes were roughly 77cm apart (this is dependant on your top shelf).
  4. Drill two Ø10mm holes right through the table top.
  5. Secure the Captia brackets with the bolts that came with the bracket set.

Step 4: Step 3 Assemble legs

Screw the legs into the pre drilled holes with the screws that came with the Adil leg set.

 

Step 5: Finished table.

I spent £52 making this table which has a lot more room than my last one plus I can store things under the monitors. This extra room not only gives me more space, rests the monitor at a comfortable height but also makes it easier to organise my work.
