Upcycled: New Ways With Old Wooden Thread Spools
Frame with spools of thread
I've actually made this before. All you need is a large wooden cable spool. You can use smaller ones for outdoor tables. No extra wood required.
We can't afford expensive pool furniture so I made some. Got the spools from Frontier (free), painted them and then stapled a vinyl table cloth to it!! FUN!
Reclaimed wood spool table.
I have one of these spools in my garage and I'm trying to find a cool project. This would be neat but I'm thinking funky outdoor furniture or something for kids room. Industrial cable spool repurposed as kitchen table.
