But if the intruder is armed with something more powerful such as an attack coffee table, you would be outgunned.

Maybe if you put one of those “gun-free zone” signs outside your house, bad guys would leave their guns in the car, and this would be an ideal solution. :D

Yes, I must agree, never take a night stand to a gunfight! LOL

If you ‘enhance’ this idea by putting Kevlar in between layers of the top and make a holster for your favorite handgun, it would be perfect for home defense.

A good start, but you will still need the ultimate backup with that defence nightstand – which IMO is to be shirtless but with taped-on firepower to your back, like in Die Hard 1. That way you can get your intruder to divulge pertinent information first (eg., about an accomplice) when you “voluntarily” drop your defence nightstand if and when their better weapon is revealed.

Just don’t step on the base after you remove the club!

Make it a stainless steel top and a shotgun for the leg.

I can see this being modified for a ” knights of the round table” type theme.
Or what about a zombie killer theme with spikes on the club and brain stains on the shield.
Too much fun….

You don’t take a knife (or a club) to a gunfight!

My nightstand is a small bedside stand with doors at the bottom. It holds my flashlight, cell phone, TV remote and my 9 mil.
