This is a light duty table made from melamine shelves (one 4’ and one 8’) from the local BORG and assembled with pocket hole screws. On the one hand a very simple project. On the other hand it was something a family member requested that I completed and delivered even before she was ready for it.
On Monday my daughter asked about getting a table to replace some metal shelves she was using for her makeup and hair stuff. We talked about what she wanted and came up with this design. While I picked up the shelves at a BORG that evening, I didn’t get to the build until Saturday, and got it done that morning.
Even though the pocket holes in the sides holding down to the top are visible, I didn’t bother trying to fill them. I figured my daughter wouldn’t care, and also they would be hard to see anyway once she got all her stuff on it. I didn’t have a big enough piece to completely fill the space in the back between the shelf and the top so I made do with the parts I have left. I was concerned that without them the table would not be adequately stable.
