CD Coffee Table

A long time ago I found my self in possession of far too many Free AOL CD's. Initially I did all the normal stupid things with them that we all did, but then I decided to aim higher, to use all the CD's in one giant project. And on that day the CD coffee table was born. After all what better way to win friends and influence people, not to mention seduce the ladies, then to have a one of a kind coffee table made out of AOL CD's.

Although the free ISP CD craze is thankfully over, you too can make your own table using your old audio CDs or perhaps all those old data CDs you burned that failed.

Materials needed:
- A lot of CDs (My normal height table contains approximately 600 CDs).
- 4 12" Long half inch threaded rods. You can find these at most hardware stores, mine were near the garage door parts.
- 8 Bolts that fit on the Rods (2 each)
- Wood for your floor piece and the base of your top. You can use whatever size and type you want, mine is about ~5x3 with finished plywood on the base Baseboard molding used around the edges (To make it classy...)
- The sealant of your choice (I used EnviroTex, which worked great and has held up for 9 years thus far scratch free).
- A large container to mix sealant in (Thank goodness soda comes in such big cups....)
