DIY Guide — Flower table

Inspired by Italian design in general, and the "Margherita" table by Giuseppe Raimondi and Ugo Nespolo for Gufram (1966) in particular. This is a guide on how to build your own flower table.

Other materials and equipment

In addition to paint and painting equipment, which you can find in our webshop, you may already have parts of what you need at home. You can find the building material at your local hardware store.


From the hardware store you will need:

  • Concrete Form Tube – 32 cm diameter

  • Plywood – 1,2x70x70 cm (here it also works with MDF)

  • Wood putty

  • Putty shovel

  • Primer

  • Plate – 25 cm diameter

  • Saw and jigsaw

  • Sanding machine and sand block


Step 1 — Measure out the pipe

Let's start with the pipe! The form tube will be 70 cm high and will serve as a base for the table. Start by cutting the tube if it is too long. Measure in several different places and then draw a line to get a straight cut. Use a string which you tie around the tube to get a straight line.


Step 2 — Cut the pipe

Once you've drawn your straight line, it's time to cut the pipe. It's easiest to start with a handsaw and then continue with a jigsaw. Follow the line all the way around. When the pipe is cut, you can sand any uneven edges to make it stable.


Step 3 — The flower shape

Time to bring out the flower shape for the table top! You make the flower shape by placing a plate five times on the plywood. Follow the shape of the plate with a pencil and move it around until you are happy with the design.


Step 4 — Cut out the flower shape

Time to cut the flower shape. Start anywhere on the edge of the plywood and cut from the center of each petal to where the petals meet. Repeat five times and you have your finished shape.


Step 5 — Sand

Sand the edges and top of the board in order to get a smooth surface and softer edges.


Step 6 — Putty

Time to putty the flower and the tube to get a more smooth surface. If you're using MDF, this is usually not necessary. When the putty has dried, sand it with a sanding block until you get a smooth surface.


Step 7 — Paint with primer

Before you paint with your chosen color, a layer of primer is required. It works like an adhesive and ensures that the paint adheres properly and you get a result durable through wear and tear. Paint the base and the board with rollers and let it dry.


Step 8 — Time to Paint!

Now for the fun part – painting your creation in the chosen colour. We have picked our K32 — Honey Bee, a bright yellow hue with warm undertones. Paint the first layer, and let it dry before applying the second coat. Then place the board on the base. Use glue for wood or furniture between the base and the flower for increased stability.

Voilà, your flower table is ready!
