Another album challenge entry ...sort of

When the album challenge was announced, my immediate thought was "ooh, I'll make a table similar to the one I made before".  Well time got away from me and I still haven't made anything new for the challenge, but I thought I'd post a project I made a few years ago.  It's long gone so I feel that this one "doesn't count".  I don't remember the album on top, but I remember it was a juicy one. 

The table was made using a vintage ashtray as the base.  I glued together 3 or 4 albums (be sure and use the really weird ones for that) to make it stiff, and glued it to the top, no glass needed.  Quite easy.

If you remember a previous post of mine, I made a table with a dart board top.  My original plan was to put albums on THAT base, but they were too small.  That's when I noticed the dart board and used it instead.  So, I'm still looking for a perfect base for another album table.  That's what I love about this whole junking thing, plans change, mistakes happen, new ideas develop, and it usually ends up leading you to somewhere you never meant to go -- USUALLY for the better.
