Sliding Top End Table
This clever living or family room addition holds a couple of surprises. The result is a multipurpose storage solution that’s sure to be a hit.
Underneath the traditional exterior, this table holds a couple of secrets. First, the top of the table isn’t fixed in place, the top extends up and out to create a more convenient surface for using a laptop or tablet or even holding gameday snacks. The other secret is a set of swivel casters recessed in the base. These make it easy to relocate the table without resorting to lifting or dragging it around. When you add in the storage compartments, a drawer, and the magazine rack, you end up with a pretty versatile addition to your family room. You may even end up wanting a second one.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
