Somewhere on the forum someone was asking about side tables for the sofa. There were several good ideas presented and I started thinking. I yanked out the armrests and used the 3/8" rod inserts for the 3/8" all thread rod supports. I found 3/8" flanges at Lowes (item #301689) to mount the table tops. I used painted 1" pvc conduit for sleeves. I got tired of having to get out a bulky table to hold a plate and a drink. These take no floor space and stay put.
