Castaway Spool

I found this tossed broken industrial electrical wire spools by the dumpster at work one day. My husband was out of town on business and I had his truck... PERFECT opportunity to go junkin. and why not rescue this its FREE. So I loaded it into the bed. When he got home later that week his only thing he said was" what are we building?". We have made 2 so far. 1 hangs in our home and the other will have a a new home at my inlaws.
