Introduction: Couch Tray Table

About: Engineer who loves diy projects.

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.

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 :)

I found one at Pier 1 imports. it is a tile top instead of wood.

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 :) .

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, & it is completely functional as well. What is there not to love about this table?

For those who do not have welding skills(like me), a cheaper version(cheaper cost & cheaper quality), can be made from PVC plumbing pipe(did I say it was a cheaper version?).

Absolutely awesome Sir!
