Laundry Done! Next, making a kitchen table


So the laundry area is officially done and I can cross that off the list. The next thing is building a tall kitchen table. I bought these Bertoia stools from someone on craigslist ages ago, but never ended up using them.  So I pulled them out from storage and stuck them in my kitchen.

I've always loved the Teepee table by CB2, but sadly they don't make it anymore.  I told my husband what I wanted and he designed this tripod table with a 36" glass tabletop.

My husband will building it and he says we still need more wood, I guess that means another trip to the lumber yard this week.

I called around looking for quotes on glass and was surprised at how much it would cost. I think the cheapest for a 36" wide 3/4" thick piece will run me $380, and $238 for a 1/2" thickness.  Hmmm…

Hi Jenn,
Pier1 has affordable table tops and bases very similar to what your husband is going to make, only with 4 legs instead of three.,default,pd.html#q=glass-table-top&start=1

Hi Kim, thanks so much for the link!

The reason the price of the custom glass is so high is because of the thickness. The glass top at Pier one is a bit thin, I want that thick high end look.

I was even thinking of looking for an old coffee table top on Craislist.

This is a little bigger than the 36" round you had in mind and it's CHEAP! it doesn't list the thickness, however. Good luck!
