Lift-Top Hardware Turns a Coffee Table into a Desk or a TV Table.
If you are working from home and need an easy desk in your living space, we are excited to share our Table Lift Hardware Kit, Osborne Part 500712BL. Our friend John at Do It Better Woodworking sent us some photos of the lift table that he built using the hardware, as well as a great video. For full instructions and detailed photos on building this very unique and functional table, see John’s blog at dibwoodworking.com.
When used to attach a table top to a coffee table base, the lift hardware can turn a regular table into an instant desk or TV tray table with just a simple tug on the top. The table top locks in place when open, then closes with a gentle tug on the table top. The top gently lowers and then closes with a soft close.
Osborne offers several sizes of hardware that support different sizes and weights of tables. See our full selection here. We also offer a huge selection of coffee table legs for your lift-table. If you would like to receive a table base kit (without the top) check out our Table Base Kit tool, where you can customize a table with the dimensions of your choice, in addition to the legs and wood type of your choice.
We thought you would enjoy a video of the lift-table opening and closing:
