Title Custom Coffee Tables - Bjorna style
Details about the pictures in this set I'd like to share with others... The image is from our lounge area... and shows three coffee tables I created a few years ago. The surfaces are Birch from the Pronomen range - 2 x 65cm x 60cm and 1x 60x120cm. The legs and sides are formed from lengths of Beach which we found easily in our local DIY store.

Not shown are brackets which were taken from the cheap Ingo tables. These are identical to the brackets used on the Bjorna table range.

The dimensions of the legs are 4x4cm about 50cm high.
The sides lengths are 9cm x 1.5cm thick: 48cm for the width and 108cm for the length. This puts the legs in the same corner positions as the Bjorna table. Note; you will need to modify these dimensions for the newer range of Pronomen (similar to Numbar) surfaces.

Once assembled, I sanded the surfaces down, and used a wood oil (not ikea) which was yellow in colour. This has the effect to turn the birch / beach into a nice warm honey colour - perfect in late afternoon sunshine.

When I have time I will modify the sides of the large coffee table to take one of the sliding drawer mechanisms - either from the Ikea Kitchen range; or from the Effective series. This would allow a small drawer to be inserted into the coffee table.

Spot what else is ikea in the picture...

Oh and all of this was brought home on the train using a trolley over a many number of late nights...
