How To Diy Your Own Hairpin Desk Legs In Just A Four Simple Steps

Have you ever looked at a hairpin leg and thought to yourself, “I could totally make that!” Well, good news: you can. In just four simple steps, you can create your own hairpin desk legs using materials you probably already have around the house. All you need is a bit of creativity and a willingness to get your hands dirty.

4 Steps To Make Your Own Hairpin Desk Legs

  1. Start by collecting some materials. You’ll need a length of 3/8″ diameter rod, a piece of 3/4″ plywood, and four hairpins. If you don’t have hairpins on hand, you can always use coat hangers or even old-fashioned steel dresser drawer handles.
  2. Cut the plywood into four equal rectangles. These will be the tops of your hairpin legs.
  3. Drill a hole in the center of each rectangle big enough to fit the rod through snugly.
  4. Assemble the hairpin legs by threading the rod through the holes in the plywood and then attaching the hairpins (or other hardware) to the ends. You may need to use a bit of glue or epoxy to get everything to stay in place.


These are just a few ideas to get you started on your own hairpin desk legs project. Be creative and have fun! Remember, there are no rules when it comes to DIY-ing your own furniture. So go forth and build something amazing!
