Introduction: Make a Human Table

What is up everybody, In this instructables I am gonna make a portable wooden human table from leftover wood.

Note that this is just a fun project and is probably the most useless thing you can make :P

Step 1: 3d Modeling

Whenever I make something, It always starts in modeling software called solidworks.That is very useful especially if you don’t know how your end product is going to look like.

I copied the design from a gif I found on the internet because it looks really simple to make.

It is just a few planks screwed together and a big plywood board in the middle.

On the bottom of the board I am going to put a foam to protect your knees from hurting and that is pretty much it.

Step 2: Cutting Down the Planks

I have used an old wooden plank with just the right width I could make 2 sides with a single board.

The only thing was to cut it on length and later cut it in half.

With a planer I flatten both sides and after that I sand all surfaces to remove an old grainy pattern from planks.

After that I cut another 44cm plank on which we are gonna sit later on.

Again, few strokes with planer, a bit of sanding and we can already assemble it together.

Step 3: Join Them Together

I drilled 4 holes on each side to prevent screws from splitting the wood and before tighten them up make sure both planes are perfectly lined up.

After that, I drilled some holes for the top board and before screwing that on I coated it with light brown color.

Step 4: Painting and Testing

When the paint was dry I secure the board to the frame and it was finally ready to be tested.

On the bottom I placed a foam to protect your knees because after some time it can get very uncomfortable to sit steady and relaxed. And there we have it.

Yes I know hah that was probably the most useless project so far but hey, it looked cool and it is really funny to sit on and have some drink with a friend.

Thank you for reading this instructable, I hope you enjoyed or at least get inspired to make something in your shop.
