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
- Measure and mark the hole
- positions for the base of the Capita brackets.
- Drill Ø2mm x 10mm deep pilot holes.
- 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
- To fix the Capita brackets in place you need to drill onto your main table holes wide enough for the bolts.
- I measured in 50cm to ensure that I can push the table against the wall.
- The distance between the holes were roughly 77cm apart (this is dependant on your top shelf).
- Drill two Ø10mm holes right through the table top.
- 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.
