Pipe Table Anatomy

I posted another set of instructions for making a cool, cost-effective pipe table but I feel required to bring it up again. Maybe its a reminder to myself to make one?

Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body finished the surface of this table in a dark stain which gives it a more refined look. She did the whole project for under $200 and its real wood and metal, not Ikea particle board and laminate.

  1. Can you tell me how tall this table is? I’m planning on making one that’s counter height and on coasters and I’m having a rough time figuring out the exactly piping lengths needed for that.

    1. It looks like this table was designed to be a standard dining table. Most dining tables are approx 30″ tall with legs at about 29″ with a 1″ thick table top.

      It looks like the height of the table is 14 +11″ plus the added height of the t-joint (maybe 3-4″ of additional height) and the thickness of the table surface. So, probably right at 30″.

      Counter height is usually 36″ so you may need to cut the leg pipes a little bit longer to accomodate the additional height.

      Does that help?
