Hi,

I have almost completed furnishing my condo and am currently trying to find a shop (in australia) that is able to provide me with a custom made, glass topped, coffee and side table to my own size specifications.

Years ago it was easy but now I am unable to find anyone.

If any of you guys have any suggestions (Shop/website) I would be grateful.

I had a small low coffee table (not glass topped, cant be a*sed to keep cleaning glass) made 8 years ago by one of those small furniture shops on Sukhumvit Road near Phrom Phong BTS (opposite side from Emporium). It was the shop that makes small size furniture for children's rooms etc.

Unfortunately the first one they made was with a highly knotted selection of woods, so the light wood was covered in dark splodges. I refused to accept it so they made me a nicer one which I still have.

Not sure if the shop is still there.

Have you looked at Indigo? They import and restore a huge range of antique furniture, decorative art and handicrafts from China, India, Japan and Tibet, and have lots of chests on their website. Find their details, and other names of companies to try in the Ethnic Furniture and Accessories section ( in our Furniture chapter) on thehousedirectory.com

Go look at a furniture store for ideas, or some books from the library. Don't be afraid to measure at a store, or even ask for literature with dimensions on it.

There is something known as the "golden ratio" or something like that. It is a ratio that is pleasing to the eye, and used since ancient times. Roughly it is 1 : 1.6. I don't have the exact decimal places off the top of my head (kind of like pi ... 3.14 is probably good enough).

You may have to play with the tapers once you establish your size.

Good luck!

There are few rules for coffee tables, one is that it should be in proportion.

OK, that doesn't help so here's a few guidelines.

Height of the table should be about the seat height of any accompanying sofas/lounges etc.

Top size is more factor of the room, bigger room - bigger table.

I find that tapers look best if started just below the rail. Overhang is best judged at the leg then decide on setback for the mortise to house the rail.

So get the project manager, several cases of beer to set the top on & play around with location, size & heght. (you may need to consume some beer so the table height can be readjusted :-). Now get her to make all the decisions. Write them down, do a drawing & file for later use in the case for the defence.

The only dimension that I've seen pretty consistent is an 18" height (floor to table top).  As others have said, LxW is more a function of the size table desired, with width usually >18" and length usually >36".   Overhang, skirt size, and whether or not to have a lower table or stretchers is mostly an aesthetic question (with some structural strength issues coming into play).

I like 15-16" legs. It seems to be an efficient use of material. The top adds about 1" to the height.

I like the width to be close to the width of the board I am using or if I need to the width of 2 bookmatched boards. 18-24" is a nice goal.

Length is what makes a coffee table look great. 5' is my goal. (It allows me to use the templates for my 32" table tops.)

I am sitting here looking at the table in the attachment. I spent too much time with my hands on those legs.

I have just placed an order with Good Rich Furniture. They are at Jatujak, Soi 5, Zone B. I met a young man there who was quite professional and friendly. They do made to order furniture and I'm pretty sure coffee and side tables would be right up their street. As I don't have my order yet, I can only comment on quality of communication on which they score very highly. They do have some furniture on display. If you want to know more details please visit here https://www.interiorsecrets.com.au/collections/coffee-tables

the ones I have made are usually 18" tall 18" wide at the top and 36" long at the top.  Overhangs will generally be about3" on the ends and 2" on the faces  If I make them longer than 36? I usually make the tops 1/2 the length.  But thats not something firm.  I make pieces based on what I have for wood.  Let the wood talk to you and tell you the top dimensions ( also the room its going in mingh chime in a bit too)  The height is always going to be dictated by the seating surcfaces

If you're going to use color and large type in your signature, would you mind terribly moving it into a signature file? Click on the My Forums button above, click on Preferences, and scroll down till you get to the signature file section. Thanks.

I built a couple of ash coffee tables about 2 years ago...they were my first pieces other than bookcases.  I looked quite a bit for some standard measurements and came up with very little...Toplin suggested an acceptable range of 16-19"H kinda depending on the height of the sofa. Issues that I believed were important but never able to clarify include top dimensions and thickness...apron size and leg size.

For dimendions I looked to the sofa size...long enough table to accomodate sitters...not so long that walking around becomes obvious.  The sitting area of the sofa measured 72", I made the table 50" long by 22" wide by 16" high.  Like you, I was planning to use 3" or so legs.  To me, I may be wrong, that kinda dictates the apron size and the top thickness.  I like to have the apron 1.5 times the thickness of the leg for strength...which gave me an apron of about 4.5".  The top is 5/4 with breadboard ends..I think it would look out of balance with a 3/4" top...but 1" might have been enough.  I turned the legs which is different than your thinking...but I think you'll need to be careful that your taper is not to aggressive...it might look like it's sitting on pins,

On the second coffee table, for my son, I made the apron about 6" so I could include a couple of good size draws.  It changed the look entirely...much heavier looking...not bad...but a different look. Good luck with your decisions...
