How To Turn a Door Into a Table?

Good Questions

Q: I have a 3 feet by 7 foot door I would like to make into a dining room table. Any ideas or pictures of this type of project?

- Posted by ToniEditor: We have no pictures, but we have some serious experience with this sort of project. Right after college, in our very first apartment we made a table (actually more of a kitchen island) out of a door and two matching thrift store bookshelves.

The bookshelves were the "legs" of the table (and provided extra kitchen storage space) and the door simply rested on top.

Design*Sponge has a "door-turned-table" DIY project. You could also check out this eHow instructional. That's probably a good place to start.

Does anyone else have suggestions on how to turn a door into a table?
