DIY Furniture: Vintage Wood Letterpress Tray Table by Loren Crane

I am always honored to share the amazing creativeness of Loren from Pandora’s Craft Box.  I have shared several of her projects in the past, including two of my favorites, her Repurposed Vintage Camera and her beautifully Upcycled Upholstered Chair.  Today, I am sharing an industrial chic Vintage Wood Letterpress Tray Table she made.

Loren purchased this vintage wood letterpress drawer printer’s tray shadow box over a year ago on ebay.  She decided to turn it into a table with iron hairpin legs she also bought from ebay. I really need to check out the deals on ebay!  She loved the idea of storing little vintage items that she has collected through her travels to antique stores.

She decided to install poster frame plexiglass on each section of the vintage wood letterpress drawer printer tray. She used scissors to carefully cut it to fit each section.

She bought the hinges from graphic 45 line that can be found at Aaron bothers. The hinges come with brads which she attached to the plexiglass and then nailed the hinges and attached them to the wooden letterpress tray.  She also added hitch fasteners to act as a door handle to each section of the letterpress printer tray.

  1. Looks awesome! If I were a kid, I would feel I am the richest person in the world, having all these treasures 🙂 for an adult, it is just really cool.. I wonder if you could use something like that as a coffee table..
