I have been working on and off on this treehouse for a friend/customer for about 3 months. I just finished the siding and that was the last thing on the outside. I figured at the rate the work was being done, the kids would be in college by the time the inside was finished. I figured maybe if I put in some furnishings, the father would feel some pressure to finish up a little quicker. Not really, I just wanted to do something for the girls, who are really great. The older of the two was not there the day I delivered, but Meg (in the third pic) loved the table, so all was well worth the trouble.

If this table had a name, it would be “let’s meet in the middle”, as the table top is made of bamboo flooring cutoffs while the legs and edge were made of cypress T&G ceiling cutoffs. If it’s free, it’s for me!

I like the little table. How did you attach the legs?

That’s hyper than the tree houses I built as a kid or even that which my father and uncles had built for me!
Very nice table mate :)

That is one fancy treehouse and a really nice table to go inside it. Is it raised up on beams connected to the ground or is it actually built in a tree? Either way, I know those girls must really be excited about their fancy furnished girl cave..

Thanks for all the kind words. The treehouse is attached to the tree, but not supported by it. So technically it’s a clubhouse, but treehouse is what the father called it, so I just got in the habit. JTD, the legs are attached with pocket hole screws, made the job a snap. And B13, I have only crosscut and ripped the bamboo (even installing the floor) so I’m not the best to speak on it’s properties. It felt pretty dense, and it is heavy as heck, but it is engineered flooring, so it may not act like other bamboo products.

Greg, this little “girl cave” (heh, sounds funny) comes with it’s own permit and must withstand 140 mph winds. I’m pretty sure that’s one reason it’s not dangling. I would have loved to do that though!
