Build height-adjustable table yourself: Here’s how to do it

With the right materials and a bit of craftsmanship, you can easily build your own height-adjustable table. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. First, get a height-adjustable table frame and a tabletop to fit it. If price is an important factor for you, go for a frame with a crank handle. Electric models are much more expensive.
  2. ÜAlso, consider whether your table should have legs or casters. With most frames you can assemble both.
  3. Assemble the table frame as indicated by the manufacturer in the instructions. Then all you have to do is screw on the matching table top.
  4. Usually a purchased table top has pre-drilled holes, so you only need to screw it to the frame. If these are not available, the assembly must be done yourself. A small drill is recommended for this.

Convert an old table

To get a height-adjustable table, you do not have to build it completely yourself. You can also convert a table that you already have. There are the following options for this:

  1. First, you can replace the existing table legs with height-adjustable legs. To be able to attach them well, it is best to choose legs made of wood.
  2. Simply unscrew the old table legs from the table top. Drill a small hole in the new table legs and screw your screws directly into it.
  3. If you want it to be even easier, you can buy a height-adjustable desk attachment. This is simply placed on the table and can be adjusted in height.
