In this Instructable I will show you how to make a PVC Lego Table for home and travel.

This is a great way for children to enjoy their Lego collection in a designated area. The legs are removable, which makes this a great traveling table as well. In its complete form the top measures 10 by 20-inches and stands about 18.5-inches tall.

I am using all 1-inch PVC for this build because my son will also be using this table as a mini desk. You should be able to use 3/4-inch PVC if you only plan to use it as a Lego table, but you may need to adjust the pipe lengths slightly.

--------------------------------------------

Parts needed:

PVC Pipes:

Four 16-inch pipes

Four 7.5-inch pipes

Three 7-inch pipes

PVC Connectors:

Four Corners

Two T’s

Other Items:

Two 10x10 inch Lego Base plates or compatible

10x20 inch piece of wood

Glue

Drill

Flush mounting bolts and nuts

Three large Lego bricks

--------------------------------

First lay out the parts to the frame. The front and back pipes are 7.5 inches and the connecting pipes are 7 inches. Assemble them securely and then add the legs. If you choose to add PVC cement, I do NOT suggest putting it on the legs.

You will also need a fairly thick piece of wood to provide additional support under the Lego base plates. I would suggest looking in the scrap wood piles at most hardwood stores. That is where I found this one for free. I cut the wood into a 10x20 inch rectangle to fit the top of the PVC. I then painted it with Eggshell white on the bottom and sides. I left the top of the wood unpainted so a layer of glue would adhere better.

After the paint dried, a quick test fit was done to double check the sizes. Everything fit great. I then removed the legs for the next step.

The wood needs to be securely attached to the PVC, so I drilled a small hole at each corner into the PVC. Instead of screws, I got some flush mounting bolts and nuts at the local hardware store. You will need the bolts to be flush with the wood so the base plates will lay flat. I tightened the nuts snug but not overly tight because it is possible to crack the PVC. If the wood ever becomes loose, just retighten the nuts.

I then glued the base plates to the top of the wood, but make sure to add a few Lego bricks connecting the two plates together so they are the correct distance apart. Now allow the glue to dry over night

And there you have it: A great Lego table for home and travel.

This table can also work as a night stand next to your child’s bed. And you can add a Lego border to keep stuff from falling off.

Or your kids can use it as a mini desk for doing homework. There are so many ways to use this table that a child can keep it for years.
