I saw Jim Healy's 7up crate table awhile back and just had to make one for myself! I found this Dr Pepper crate for 5 bucks, found the glass for a dollar at the same junk show, and the rest is history! Thanks, Jim for the inspiration!

JunkinLindsey, the yellow at the bottom of each leg is a rubber coating they make for tool handles. It’s a liquid that I dunked the ends of the legs into…hope that helps.

Did you find rubber covers for the feet on yours (the yellow pieces)? I'd like to add some if they make them to fit flat metal.

Lindsey, great crate table! I really like the design you came up with for the legs. Did you use my highly technical advise of “whacking them into shape with a rubber mallet”? Glad to hear the 7-Up Crate Table inspired you and THANKS!
