Side table inspired by The Jetsons #WearableWednesday


Thanks to Cynthia for sending in this awesome looking table project! Check out the full build on Instructables.

My last build was the (martini) side table for my seating area.


After I finished that it was time to replace the clunky and ugly side table next to the boy’s stylish chair.

He had one request, namely that it had a drawer.

I had one idea, it had to have EL wire.

I had an old piece of damaged plywood from a temporary table. It was doing nothing but taking up space. I was determined to turn that into his table, somehow.

I decided an ellipse would make a nice table top, as it would visually look smaller than a rectangle shape having the same, usable surface area. Plus, I like curves more than 90 degree angles, all organic-looking and stuff.

Follow me in my spontaneous build…!

Featured Adafruit Product!


High Brightness Green Electroluminescent (EL) Wire – 2.5 meters – High brightness, long life: EL Wire, also known as Electroluminescent wire is a stiff wire core coated with phosphor and then covered with a protective PVC sheath. When an AC signal is applied to it, it glows an aqua (blue green) color. You can make it look different colors by changing the coating, for example this is a vivid lime green. It looks a little like thin neon. Very bendable, it keeps its shape and you can curl it around your finger. Its an easy way to add some glow to a project, not as bright as LEDs but uses a lot less power! Read more.
