My Mother-In-Law had a particular need – a side table for the sofa. Problem: The sofa sits away from the wall into a walk way through the room. The end of the sofa where the table is needed could cause a standard table to be in the way.
My thought was a narrow table (12” wide, perhaps 24” long), but then I was worried about stability. If it’s narrow, and has legs that stay within the dimensions of the table top, it may tip easily.
My solution was to look at putting a foot under the sofa to weight it down and hold it up.
I’ll be building a prototype out of MDF to test the theory.
