Epic DIY coffee table with built in computer (20 Photos)


  • FiddyKing

    Pretty sweet!!

    • MylesofStyles

      Especially the step-by-step instructions. Never mind the 64 steps between, "Clamp them all together" and "After a lot of sanding".

    • Gibby

      Maybe he should have gotten a lap top…

    • trill

      pretty sweet! he can now beat off in the living room – for that 'i just might get caught' excitement!

    • Max

      Laptop = way easier

  • MEH

    ta-da! the most uncomfortable computer desk ever!

    • Rusty Shackleford

      A couple cushions on the floor would fix that

      • r@f

        yeah and the fan right next to t the keyboard?
        That's dust spreading all around your keypads. Not good.
        Good execution bro. The planning might need improvement though.

        • dawgbone98

          If he's smart that one is an intake fan.

    • lat297

      Exactly what I was thinking!

    • U.S.

      and that keyboard is going to be dusty as fuck with the fan right next to it.

      • Si1entStatic

        unless like mentioned above:

        that if he was smart that one should be for intake.

    • soft taco juice

      Appreciate the effort but as far as furniture it is ugly and poor craftsmanship.

      Just get a tablet and sit comfy on the couch!!

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Awesome job. It took me forever just to set up my PS3

  • Tim

    That looks really comfortable… If your a miget or have a back like mr burns

    • suck me dry

      you're suck it

  • Chris

    Better use a damn coaster!

  • hugh.m@rshall.us

    That stain looks like shit. He should've just painted it.

    Nice effort though, I guess. KCCO!

    • frankus

      should have just properly stained it

      • ps86

        well, doesn't help that he built it with SPF 2×6's that were definitely NOT meant for furniture/cabinetry.

        • Slauterhause

          Yup, as a professional woodworker, making this in construction lumber is a crime. Cool design, but if you're gonna spend the time on this, use real wood.

    • gma

      the finish is fucking hideous

      • http://twitter.com/undefined @undefined

        Seriously, it looks like shit, the ugly and the huge ugly fan sticking out next to the keyboard…

        • Si1entStatic

          where else would he put it? on the outside where everyone can see it? It's acceptable as long as it's the intake….

          • AveryJoe

            the bottom…

    • lat297

      I don't think it is shit though… You'd probably get the right colour but the smell would be a bit off-putting…

    • SOhioChiver

      looks like they put a walnut stain on wood with little grain, likely maple or poplar, it never turns out well that's what gives it the high school shop class look…A lighter stain or maybe a different wood with a nice grain like oak or hickory with no stain would have made a world of difference. It's a cool fun idea don't be a hater.

      I'm thinking the days of the PC in the living room are over though because tablets are so cheap.

      • Slauterhause

        he used 2×6 which is pine/spruce…. doesn't stain well, obviously.:)

      • Aaron

        I'm reading this on my iPad while I poop.

        • Onizel

          Same here bro

        • AveryJoe

          Really? What a coincidence! I'm pooping on a iPad as I read this!

    • RobboJohn

      Thank you for saying! I thought I was the only one wondering what was up with that stain job.

    • Gonzi

      Totally agree. The whole table looked much better before the stain process…
      Nice work anyway 😉

  • TiberSeptimonWheels

    why would you not measure how tall you needed it so you wouldn't have to bend over? It is obviously built well just not tall enough

    • shawn

      probably because its a coffee table dipshit.

      • TiberSeptimonWheels

        Oh ok name calling? Then he picked the wrong venue to put a computer in. shithead

        • Si1entStatic

          i don't know Good Sir…. It has it's usefulness. I mean there have been a few instances when I'm watching netflix's on the TV and then needed to Google the hot actress to see if she did any porn…. so it could have a niche market.

  • Ken

    bitch please where's the mouse space?

    • hankmarkdukas

      It's a wireless mouse and keyboard set up. I use the mouse on the couch next to me with the keyboard on my lap with my feet on the ledge

  • Rich

    A wireless keyboard with a track-pad and a telescoping monitor mount would actually make this pretty nice

    • ps86

      know what else would make it nice? a laptop

  • Fart

    Don't want to hate but my god that's ugly

    • Rafe

      Yeah really… and as a carpenter…glue jointed 2×6 building lumber isn't going to look any better up close unless you've got a 36' drum sander in the background there somewhere

  • Kevin James

    Just a computer desk moved closer to your couch with shorter legs.

  • the gonk


  • Iffjk

    This person is good at computers but bad at woodworking.

  • bstar

    Where's the plug??????

  • cally

    and one spilled drink later…. na you'll be okay shamwow that junk

  • vinn

    #15 oh man why'd you have to get a gigabyte gtx 550 ti? you should have bought a series 600 and a good looking EVGA brand instead

    • SAChiverSteven

      Zero Fucks given

    • lat297

      Excuse me, this is the woodwork, mechanics, breasts and funny shit forum. Computers are down the corridor and to the left.

      • allah-kaboom!

        Since you're getting a kickass computer coffee table you might as well make it better.

    • bcc

      Said no one cool ever.

  • Commander McBragg

    'A' for effort and creativity but what a waste of time.

  • MonkeyMadness

    It's a shame to spend all that time and money for it to come out looking like shit. It looks like a 7th grade shop project. I built a birdhouse better looking than that.

  • Eric

    You are some kind of sorcerer….

  • tireboy11

    Kcco people, where's the love? Most of you must not be wood workers either, cuz you would know 2×6's doesn't look like glass when finished.

    • LawnGuyLand

      Yeah. If you start out with pine you usually end up with pine. Better woo may have saved this project.

      • FckOffDasMyName

        I assure you I work with pine all the time and it never looks as bad as this.

    • Slauterhause

      I can make any wood look like glass, but shitty wood will always be shitty wood. Texture doesn't equal overall finish.

  • Nick

    Reminds me of the arcade games built into tables in the 80's. For all the haters, my wife would love this for song pop, farmville etc. when shes happy, everyone's happy.

    • smallchinaman

      If your wife wants to play Farmville on the couch get her a tablet or laptop.

  • JSJonwheels

    Damn you guys are harsh! I bet most of you couldn't build this half as nice! Read the title, it's a coffee table, not desk!!!! I think the craftsmanship is pretty good, as far as the stain, to each their own.

  • bob

    i would have went with a better color… any color but that one. looks cheap

  • lat297

    This looks like a great idea, but I can't help thinking a laptop and a nice table from Ikea is better solution…

    #8 this looks a lot more epic looking than the finished product lol 😀
