This table was made with a cable spool, fence boards, palette wood and some old trim given to me by the White Settlement Senior Center (where i volunteer regularly). I made this with only some rudimentary tools, My cat's supervision, quite a few yrs of carpentry experience , and a whole lot of background in the concept of "necessity is the mother of invention". I am well aware that there are dozens of easier ways to do a lot of the steps.. but at this point in time i find myself a bit tool disadvantaged, although my need to create still remains at the same steady hum. Since this was made with salvaged materials, this instructable is meant as a tool to furnish (see what i did there?) other users with creative ideas, and a few tips that someone without a carpentry background might not have.
