And visit the manufacturer 80/20, who created a kit especially for this project that will allow you to quickly assemble the base.I recently became aware that we needed a new coffee table. Let me rephrase that. My wife made me aware that we needed a new coffee table. Those kinds of revelations happen when you are married. We hadd bought a coffee table at a tag sale 20 years ago, and although it served us well, I have to admit that my wife was right. The table was beginning to look a little dated. I drew up several designs for a replacement; I decided to forgo wood, opting instead to use extruded aluminum tubing for the base and a marble slab for the top. I was looking for a clean, mechanical, minimalist design. The base is made from fractional 15 Series smooth T-slotted aluminum, an extruded material with slots that accept connectors.
