This simple table was made using the DIWire and just a few other tools.

Material: 7 lengths .125" Galvanized Steel Wire, 25 mm Plywood

Tools: Wire Cutters, Clips, Soldering Torch, Solder, Glue Gun + Glue

Time: 2 - 3 Hours

Skill Level; Challenging

Step 2: Bend and Check

Make sure all legs are scaled the same for a stable table. (Sorry we can't help with crooked floors.)

Step 3: Lay-out the Legs

We used some cut wooden wedges to locate the wire properly for soldering.

Step 4: ​Clip It Up!

We used small metal curtain clips at the time, but you can print your own clips or even buy them from our site. You could also try gluing or taping a spot along the seam before soldering.

Step 5: Solder

Step 6: Mount Legs

Place in sawn grooves in plywood, then staple-/nail-gun the wire in place.
