Standout river tables with hairpin legs - The Hairpin Leg Co.

You've seen the videos on Instagram.

The hypnotic pour of liquid resin. It's impossible to look away as it oozes into place, slowly setting to create a beautiful river table.

If, like us, you've been mesmerised by one of these clips and thought 'I should make my own someday'... now could be your time.

This collection of stunning river tables by @pahjo_designs (complete with step-by-step materials guides and 'how-to' videos) is here to get your inspiration flowing.

It takes a little time and effort, but – as these projects show – the result is worth it.

Beach-inspired Resin River Table

Made with 28" black hairpin legs

The great thing about homemade furniture is you can completely personalise it, so it means something to you.

Jeremy from Pahjo Designs was inspired to make this wood and resin table by the emerald waters of Destin, Florida.

With real sand and sand dollars in the resin, set perfectly between live-edge cypress, it's a daily reminder of this beautiful beachscape.

For a step-by-step guide on how to make your own, read the full tutorial.

Glow-in-the-dark Epoxy Resin River Table

With 3-rod 16" black hairpin legs

This radiant epoxy river table is another example of how you can embed objects in your resin, and use glow powder for a light-up effect.

This live-edge epoxy resin table is made with sinker cypress. Thanks to the sky-blue glow powder, it glows in the dark – without lights.

Why use hairpin legs?

River tables look great with hairpin legs. The minimal nature of steel or black legs won’t detract from the natural beauty of the wood and epoxy.

Hairpin legs also help save you time, as they're so easy to attach to your tabletop.

All our legs come with screws, a fitting guide, and free floor protectors.

So once you've created your top, the rest is super easy.
