I really like those resin coffee tables with the blue water effect, they’re very striking. Thought it would be cool to make a world map version, but given how complicated it would be to make such a thing, I started thinking about a simple way to execute the idea: blue glass.

I’m surprised no one has done this yet, at least from what I could find online. So I thought I’d post a concept or two here.

Toy Chest That Transforms Into A Playset

I attempted this design a year or so ago, but when I finished it the thing looked like a deathtrap so I shelved it, and opted to post this instead. This time I took child safety into consideration (for once) and made a super-simple toy chest that transforms into a playset.

TV Stand For Game Consoles

Here is a TV stand for displaying game consoles behind glass doors. In my experience, glass doors are often a hindrance for accessing electronics, so I wanted a system where I can stow these doors on demand. This is ideal for an enclosed display case that is also completely accessible when needed.

Inspired by convertible automobiles, the glass doors stow on the fly. They piggyback onto side drawers (used for controllers and games) for the sliding/stowing mechanism. Now there’s no glass in the way of gaming.

Coffee Table For Gadget Lovers

USB Coffee Table For Gadgets 2019 Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

All my devices, cables, and game controllers are plaguing me like Tribbles, so I came up with this simple design: a coffee table with an easel, plus storage and USB charging. Perfect for couch-bound geeks everywhere.

The easel faces the couch, and you can park your phones, tablets, and remotes on it. Now you can always see who is calling, or watch your tablet with ease.

A large drawer opens up to reveal storage for game controllers and cables, or whatever you want to toss inside. Those things called “books” could be stored in here, if you’d like.

Hockey Rec Room Design

This is an old design that I’m bringing over from my hockey blog. It is the hockey pad of my dreams! The centerpiece of the design is a floating entertainment unit that is mounted onto a wall (adorned with a crowd mural) that looks like an NHL scoreboard, this is where the TV sits.

Guillotine Dresser And Mirror

The long-awaited followup to my Ouija Board coffee table and rug design, I present a mirror and dresser combo that has a Guillotine theme. Nothing disturbing about this at all, ha-ha. This can also be a table and mirror combination, for a more ‘raised platform’ appearance, and to allow it to be parked in a hallway.
