Lack on Lack, a Night Stand.

Introduction: Lack on Lack, a Night Stand.

About: I'm a married father of four running a bakery in China, and have not much time to do other things. I know my way with tools, like to help friends if something has broken down, and also enjoy creating things ...

I've been checking out some of the other Ikea hacks but never been able to do one myself. So when one of my friends was getting rid of two Lack tables I knew it was my turn to mess around!

Step 1: What You Need

2 Lack tables
Drill w/bits
4 screws
A small piece of tape (if you want to use a little trick Ive seen around)

Step 2: Let's Get Started

Put one assembled table up-side-down, and the top of the second table on the top of the legs of the first one. Remember to also put the top of the second table up-side-down.

Step 3: Drill It

Use a small drill bit and make a hole between the corner of the table top and the hole that is already there for the legs. Make the new whole all the way through the top and into the legs of the first table you put down.
After the hole is made, take a larger dill bit and drill about half way into the table top, this will get the screw you are putting into the whole out of the way for the leg we'll put on later.
TIP! To be sure you don't drill too deep, put a piece of tape on the big drill bit where the drill bit would be half way through the table top.

Screw the first corner together, and continue to the four others repeating the steps above.

Step 4: Add the Legs, and Your Done.

When all the corners are connected, put on the legs of the second table.
When all legs are on, turn your new "Lack on Lack" table right-side-up.

    I stacked 3 of these Lacks, makes a nice unit. I used plastic "modesty blocks" to join the bottom of each leg to the table below, so they can be easily dismantled into single tables when needed.

    Nice! I've been looking for a quick, cheap solution for a kitchen island. I'm gonna make two of these and put them next to each other. Probably zip-tie the legs or something so they stay together.
