just guessing here, but an ikea table and an engine block heater might just do the trick. as for the blanket, buy one size larger than the table and a good quality staple gun.

Use fire-resistant materials and a blanket that can be easily washed.

Build a light frame that can be easily disassembled and put away or re-purposed into a coffee table when its not winter.

Install kotatsu heater not space heater.

This sounds like a huge fire hazard.

179 fires caused by kotatsu between 2005 and 2009, and the main causes of fires are bending the cable until it breaks/shorts out or stuffing the kotatsu with clothes. So like, just don't do that.

This looks really confy but I wonder in how much time someone who sat on chair for is whole life could enjoy sitting in seiza more than 2min

Why the hell would you sit seiza at a kotatsu? The entire purpose of a kotatsu to keep your legs warm. How do you suppose it can do that if your legs are under your ass?

Sure have. I built it the hard way.
There's holes in the blanket with metal grommets and pins in the legs that locate in the table top.

If I made another I'd just put magnets on the legs and table top.

Cost under $100 to make. But you'll need a lathe and router to make it the hard way.

It has chairs now too, just cut the legs off them.

It's going to sit on a heated rug with a thick rug ontop of it because wood floors.
>I hate sitting on the floor

I guess I just like making things more than using them

Or ya can just place the tabletop on top of the blanket. How it's supposed to be.

I didn't want someone stepping on the blanket and pulling the table top and everything on it over.
