They're glass-topped coffee tables made from old metal flat files.

funny because they seem like an easy thing to do yourself. they're cool but that's a steep price tag, and where would my feet go?

Obviously no one in their right mind would pay that, but it's a great idea for anyone who's handy enough. I'm planning on building my flatfile, and doing just this [doubling as a coffee table, probably no glass]

10 drawers, 49"x 35". Offer $200 and they accept.

Go home to figure out where it's going and tell the wife and she asks how it's going to fit through our 29" door frames. Go back and get my money back. drymount me. :hanging: This is why I can't do things on my own. :P

Damn! sorry to hear that it looks sweet, but that's why mine is in the living room, it wouldn't fit through a standard door so had to come in the double doors at the back of the house.

DAMN THIS OLD ASS HOUSE! :lol:

3 doors and they're all 29". It's an aspect that I honestly never even took into consideration when I recently started my flat file search. I have a feeling it's going to be a reoccurring theme for me. :?

5 drawer flat files will fit fine if you carry them in on their side. Don't worry too much about it, just find a couple 5 drawer units that match and you're set.
