Make Any Surface a Table
One of the marvels of Kickstarter is that successful products tend to be either: A. common products done well (backpacks, dress shirts, etc) or B. products whose usefulness is so profoundly obvious, you wonder why no one made it up until now. The Floyd Leg is an example of B. It’s a table leg that clamps onto any board to make an instant table.
There’s not a whole heck of a lot to say about the Floyd Legs. They will be available in both 29″ dining and 16″ coffee table heights. They feature a clean design and will be available in multiple powder-coated colors. They will have a machined F-clamp attached to an 11 gauge cold-rolled steel leg shaft. Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell, the guys behind the project, say they are ideal for light to medium use, such as a desk or planter table. Because of a lack of cross-bracing, they say that making them into a dining table is not ideal, though we suspect it’d work if the surface wasn’t too big.
We see the Floyd Leg as a perfect compliment to small space living. Because of their svelte size, you can hide them away if you don’t need a table most of the time. You could keep a couple easy-to-store boards around to suit whatever function you needed on a particular day. If you move to a larger space–or a smaller one for that matter–all you need to do is switch out the surface to make an appropriate sized table.
The project has has met an amazing $165K of its $18K funding goal. A $189 pledge will get you a set of 16″ or 29″ legs. Projected delivery is late April of this year. See more on their Kickstarter page.
