Introduction: Cable Reel Table

Picture of Cable Reel Table

I made this cable reel into an outdoor table but it can also be used indoors, great for entertaining. It's diameter is 5 feet and 43" tall. I stained it and sealed it with minwax. I also installed 4 heavy duty skid free casters and bought a 9' umbrella for it. It is very sturdy, definitely not your grandmas table.

Step 1: Find a Cable Reel, Look on Cragslist, Local Electrical Shops, Etc..

Step 4: Buy an Umbrella If You Want One, I Got This One From Menards for $80.00. Cable Reel Already Has Holes on Both Sides So the Umbrella Will Just Slide In.

Enjoy your table for many years to come. You can also build or buy some bar stools for it, it should seat 6-7, maybe even 8 people. Cheers...

Or bring them into a wholesaler for the $45-$90 deposit

Can you really buy a table like this for 50 Bucks?
