This is a hypothetical “DIY” project on how to construct two desks from one circular dining room table.
What “hypothetically used, and what you may need. Measurements can of coarse vary. This is a story on a circular dining room table made of wood left in the rain for garbage. This particular table had a “pull out” for a mid piece, but it was not present. An existing pre-made bar-stool held up this model for the table support.
Total cost for this type of assumed project was about ten dollars.
What you will need:
1. A dumpster special, or a cheap second hand wooden table, preferably a two piece circular type
2. Hand tools
3. Sand paper
4. Paint for wood, of your color of choice
5. Two pre-existing bar stools were used as support for both desks
6. No children to yell at while working
All the legs were removed from the table with a standard screw driver. The legs were set aside, and of coarse there were four legs for this table.
The decorative ornamental wood from the center of this table was removed as well as the metal slides and hardware with standard hand tools.
Two halves of the table which remember made a total circle were separated, sanded and painted. Now try to get a visual in your head. There are two crescent shaped separate pieces of wood, now sanded and painted. Hypothetically, one wondered how would these halves be supported as desks?
Easy. Due to a lighting strike about the hood, two pre-made bar-stools were found to be great supports for each of the desk tops. By placing them in the center rear portion of the “circle half” and care fully drilling a few holes into the table top, and ultimately into the bar stool it worked out fine.
You may not be lucky enough to have barstools laying about. But you may have a few two by fours. You definitely have the four table legs you took off to begin with. Sometimes cheap PVC tubular plastic may conform for great table legs, or desk legs. Find what you need before undergoing this project or any project.
From trash, gold can be made. The desk as described has no drawers, but can easily be moved to anywhere in the room, or for that matter in the house. One can also simulate empty space by simply using a cut two by four, and spacing the two halves apart but equal with each other and screwing the table top (half) to the support. You would upon completion see a four or two inch gap between the half circles when connected. Total estimated time two and one half hours. Can be made shorter easily with right preparation.

These desk’s look cool, and offer plenty of room, and are true space savers, hypothetically of-coarse.
