I finally got a hold of a couple of timber cable spools and decided to tackle one! All three are different sizes, but the largest one could be used as a dinner or outdoor table. What inspired me is the fact that local cafes and community spaces have been utilising these ‘industrial waste’ products to great effect. It’s usually super cheap (or free!) and relatively easy to fix depending on how fancy you want to get.

The biggest changes I made is cropping the bottom of the ‘table’ for more leg space and adding wheels since it might be a little too heavy for carrying. Its also been reinforced with used plywood for greater strength, sanded back and varnished. I chose not to hide the old colours, cracks or puttied holes.
