Have You Ever Built Your Own Furniture?

I can do a lot of crafty things, but I am not a builder. So I am super impressed with this coffee table that Chez Larsson's husband and son built. Aside from the fact that it's gorgeous and one of a kind, it's not just a table top and legs: it has shelves and wheels and curves. Do I hear applause?

A dear friend of mine did make me a gorgeous coffee table from Claro Walnut heartwood, and I'm in awe of it every time I plop down on the couch. Have you ever built your own furniture?

Question: I have a black "pleather" sofa (3 seater). One of the seats has been eaten away and looks corroded due to wrinkling and having a pet. Does anyone know of a vinyl cover or patch that can be glued on? No duvet's, too expensive.

I wish I knew how. I am the kind of person who has discriminating taste. And i always look for things that are out of the norm or usual. I've been looking for certain piece for my house. And I usually know what I want when i see it. But have been having a hard time trying to find what I want. I wish I had the savvy to make my own furniture.

No. I would be so awful at it. I could probably make something that I could stand back and look at it. But just don't sit down in it or you just might it the floor. If you put a drink on it, it may flat to the floor too :)

my hb build us a oak paneled side table, with cool pictures of his art,us, guitar picks, record images and other stuff epoxyed in, with some kind of clear epoxy jealous of his talents!

I'm not a builder but I help my dad. He hates everything pre made and constantly found defects. My mom got tired of going to furniture stores to hear him complain. She suggested he buiid his own and he has been doing so.
