I made this atelier table for my daughter. Besides work desk for her study activiies, she needed a table for her hobby painting stuff. So, I came up with simple 18×18mm square iron rod construction with 18mm, 93×53cm pine board, with small drawer. My father in law was welding master, I just made wooden parts and painted iron in black. Table finish -two layers of spray laquer. Table grain direction is due available leftovers.

Nice work. Simple yet elegant, and definitely practical. Ik like combinations of metal and wood (although unfortunately my welding skills are poor).

Made to order is better than trying to find the right one! Nice work Ivan! Drawer on the left for a lefty? I’m a lefty and when in school every desk I ever sat in was for a right handed person!
Congrats on your quick… DT3!

That looks very nice majuvia. Does the cross bar on the bottom keep a chair from sliding under? It almost seems like the base needs to be turned around, but I am sure there is a reason.
