Last month, we spotlighted retail shop Poketo's new digs in Downtown Los Angeles, whose store displays were just as artfully arranged as their modernist designs. This month, designers and owners Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung shared how they made the custom sawhorse table pictured above on the cheap.Vadakan repurposed a 42x80-inch solid-core birch door ($138) from Taylor Brothers Architectural Products and paired it with surprisingly modern and minimalist $30 Home Depot metal sawhorses.
The bold yellow sawhorses are pre-drilled, making it simple to screw on the door, and their functionality allows the table to fold up flat for storage, or adjust in height to suit different needs (or desktop users).
You can even DIY on the cheap(er) by using planks and scrap wood, or basic tabletops from IKEA.
