This series of short Clips shows how you can recycle old solid wood furniture into new contemporary pieces. Starting out with the design process. 

Project: Repurposing the Sitting Room Table

Introduction: Welcome to the journey of transforming an old sitting room table into a sleek and functional piece that aligns with modern needs. This guide will take you through the steps of deconstructing the old table and redesigning it to fit a new purpose.

Step 1: Deconstruction

  • The current table was initially designed to support a bulky television and DVD player, which are now outdated.
  • Dimensions: Approximately 30 inches long, 15 inches wide, and 22 inches high.
  • Deconstruct the table using a handsaw to remove unnecessary parts, such as the supports for the DVD player and TV boxes.

Step 2: Planning and Design

  • Objective: To create a lighter, more airy design that complements the slimline television.
  • Remove solid sides to lighten the appearance.
  • Reduce the thickness to achieve a more refined look.
  • Consider adding features such as cable management to conceal wires.

Step 3: Execution

  • With a clear plan in mind, proceed to cut the table to the desired dimensions.
  • Ensure structural stability while maintaining the new design aesthetic.
  • Approach the project with a well-thought-out strategy to avoid unnecessary mistakes.


  • Repurposing old furniture not only breathes new life into pieces but also allows for customization to meet current needs.
  • Stay tuned for the next phase, where we’ll explore shaping and refining the design for structural stability.
  • Remember, always have a plan before embarking on any project, and approach each step with care and consideration.

Next Steps:

  • Stay tuned for the next update, where we’ll delve into shaping and refining the design for structural stability.
  • Feel free to jot down any ideas or preferences you have for the redesigned table.
  • Don’t forget to consider functionality along with aesthetics in the redesign process.
