Want to make yourself a table, but don’t necessarily want to go through all the trouble of sawing, drilling, sanding, and screwing it all together? Not to worry friend – thanks to this innovative contraption being funded on Kickstarter, if you’ve got any kind of relatively flat surface, you can easily make yourself a table.
The Floyd Leg is a stunningly simple device. It’s basically a flattened C-clamp with a leg protruding from the bottom, and resembles something of an oddly-shaped monkey wrench. The idea is that you can clamp three or four of them onto any slab of material, and voila! You’ve suddenly got a table in front of you.
Designer Kyle Hoff hatched the idea for the legs about three years ago. At the time, Hoff was living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle – traveling to different cities for work and school on a fairly regular basis, and in each new place he landed in, he found himself buying and discarding furniture rather than taking it with him, which wasn’t exactly ideal. He needed something that was easy to pack up and move around with, and after his searches for such a product came up empty, he decided to build his own. A few dozen prototypes later, the simple, elegant Floyd Leg was born.
With this minimalist and highly-accommodating design, you can put together a makeshift table in just a few minutes, and since the surface material can be practically anything, you’re free to find something that fits the decor of your space. Reclaimed barnwood, old longboard decks, a simple piece of glass – it’s all fair game. The legs can be affixed to materials up to 2.25 inches thick and 75 pounds in weight, and are available in heights of either 16 or 29 inches.
The project has already blasted past it’s original $18K funding goal, and expects to ship Floyd Legs to backers as early as May of this year. Check out the page for further details on backer rewards and pricing.
