I needed a piece of furniture for my Pavoni Espresso machine and other coffee machines that I have. After trying to locate a quick fix second hand in the right height, I realized that I would have to build it myself to get what I wanted.

The idea was something simple and robust to withstand some abuse from me making coffee and the kids banging on it.

I found a bunch of scrap material in the recycling station in town that I took home to my dads place since I have moved to Sweden and do not have a workshop here. Crappy materials and tools aside I am happy with the final result.

I am guessing something like Height: 100 cm
I use one with 80 cm and it is too low to make coffee
thanks

I went with 105 cm since I read on the net that it seems like a somewhat standard height in Italy when they use lever machines in a commercial environment.
