Brodie's Side Table

Brodie's Side Table


A little over a year ago, Tiny WPA moved into our new community workshop on Lancaster Ave. in West Philadelphia. Immediately, Brodie and many of the other Building Heroes wanted the space to feel like “theirs”, to represent the work we do here and to actually be a subtle showroom for the products they are creating. Brodie is one of our Building Heroes and a student at the local Science Leadership Academy. Inspired by the original Building Hero Bench, Brodie designed a coffee table for our community living room--two broad planes sandwiched around a chaotic cluster of small, lightweight struts which together can support the weight of just about anyone we can find.

Here at #4017lancaster we believe in actively shaping the spaces and the neighborhood we live in and we believe in the strength of teamwork to do it! Together, we’ve worked to create new iterations of Brodie’s original design and we’re proud to offer them to you here! As a testament to our process, we’re excited to continue testing out colors and materials, so each table you see listed is one-of-a-kind and carries the personality of the @beabuildinghero who made it. We will be releasing new versions at different price points over the coming months.

Do you live in the Philadelphia area? We offer a Building Hero-led Table Building class! For the same price, Brodie or another Building Hero will teach you how to make your very own table.

Purchase the Bench Building class option and we will contact you via email to schedule your class. All classes take place at our makerspace, 4017 Lancaster Avenue in West Philadelphia.
