For this project you need: 1. Between 15 and 20 cardboard tubes measuring 56" long and with wall thickness of approximately 1/8." If substituting mailing tubes make sure you have a lot of them. 2. Gorilla glue--You can probably use another kind of glue, but I had this lying around and for some reason I felt like using it. If you use Gorilla Glue you should also have a sponge and water source handy to dampen the materials before applying glue. 3a. A saw. 3b. (Optional but really kind of important ) A miter box. 4. String or twine of some sort--I used some cotton yarn remnants from my ex-girlfriend's knitting project (with her permission of course! We are on good terms!). 5. A pencil you don't mind ruining. 6. Another writing implement for marking. 7. A measuring tape or other measuring device. 8. A tarp that you don't mind trashing. A garbage bag might also work.
Some optional tools and supplies include: Paint and method for applying paint Plexiglass or corruguated cardboard to make a flat top surface for the table A coping saw (for cutting the plexiglass) An exacto knife
