If you've got some basic tools and the materials, you can build a sawhorse/trestle yourself in an afternoon. Or if you've got $50, you can go to Ikea and purchase their Finnvard, which has an adjustable-height top.
But if you've got money to burn, you can head over to Etsy and drop $400 on this "transformable, adjustable bar table."
Okay, I'll admit the creator put in a little design work with the drink holders.
But, I mean...come on.
Why don't you find something better to talk about , or do you not realise that's a bloody huge portion of design consists of overpriced crap , is any bought because of the price tag, like this site's new redesign ! , Could you do an article on how terrible this website is to use !
I'm having a harder and harder time believing you've ever actually built anything other than that stupid dovetail box that looked absolutely horrible.
First of all he didn't repurpose it. He rebuilt/designed an entirely new version (albeit similar in look to the Ikea one) with more expandable possibilities. "repurposed" conveys the notion that he bought the Ikea product...and then modified it. Which he didn't. Second, his entire Etsy shop is full of similar designed items that all have a consistent look and build quality and also assembly similarly.. Is it overpriced? That's in the eye of the buyer. Clearly there is alot of work and material that goes into one of those things...lots of little pieces to produce. I'll second what @whynow said....this site has devolved quite a bit from the days when it championed design instead of bashed it. There's other arenas for that.
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
