Have you ever wanted to eat comfortably from your couch or not burn your thighs from using a laptop while sitting down for a long period of time?

A simple modern self-standing tray table could be very beneficial to suit your needs. This tray table could also double as a nightstand for a dorm room or small apartment. The materials used to make this tray table can easily found at your local hardware store.

<p>I did one very similar. I used old bed frames for the angle iron legs and frame, a wooden rack from an old apple press for the top, and fancied it up by cutting up a wrought iron front door for the scroll work.</p>
That looks amazing, really nice touch with the wrought iron!
<p>This is super awesome! My husband and I have been trying to find one of these, but never find ones sturdy enough. Guess we'll have to use your Instructable and make them ourselves :)</p>
<p>I found one at Pier 1 imports. it is a tile top instead of wood. </p><p>However I wish I saw this before I bought it. At work we scrap all the parts I would need. Maybe I need a second one :) .</p>
<p>or a 3rd...and don't forget the kids, they should each have one as well. LOL</p>
<p>This is one of those kinds of projects, that you just can not help but fall in love with....it's well built, looks fantastic to say the least, &amp; it is completely functional as well. What is there not to love about this table? </p><p>For those who do not have welding skills(like me), a cheaper version(cheaper cost &amp; cheaper quality), can be made from PVC plumbing pipe(did I say it was a cheaper version?).</p><p>Absolutely awesome Sir!</p>
<p>+1 for engineering paper!</p>
<p>This is a very striking design! I am going to attempt this. Thank you very much for sharing it.</p>
<p>Amazing first instructable! I love the metal and wood together! </p>
