4. ST1 | Side Table by Marktonikkle

If you’re looking to redecorate your home, here’s a 3D-printed actual-sized side table! This design is part of the creator’s “ongoing series of experiments to create large-scale furniture using FDM 3D printing, as part of a loop of recycling and reusing prototypes by shredding, granulating, re-extruding and re-printing.” 

They printed it using a large-format 3D printer but if you’ve got CAD and slicer skills, you can tweak this to fit your own printer if you don’t have a large one. 

They recommend using some recycled 18mm plywood for the tabletop and modelling the countersinks into the printed component for screw fixings.
