This made to order floating entry table is an IKEA "ekby alex" shelf that has drawers. It really is a great space (and time) saver when you can use the pre-made IKEA shelf brackets as well.

Photos reflect top and drawer fronts fabricated from Ambrosia Maple, sometimes called Ghost Maple. Ambrosia maple is a soft maple that is infested by beetles that bore small holes in the surface and create tiger stripe-like trails. Ambrosia Maple varies greatly from board to board, but email me for examples or to choose any other species of wood.

I used old knob porcelain electrical insulators as the drawer pulls, these knobs were found on the joists of my 1925 home during some renovation.

48" long x 12 3/4" wide x 5 1/2" deep, and while the drawers are on the small side, they are dictated by the IKEA dimensions. The top dimensions can be altered comfortably, and any wood species can be substituted for the top and drawer fronts.
