One of many piles to pick from my garage and elsewhere.
this was my first one took 2 days to figure out what looked good. How to assemble for safety and hold up to weight and not tip over.  only 2 items were from tag sale.  The rest was on curbs for the junk pile in the sky
This one took about 1.5 hours to assemble.  I had it down pat after the other one and the shopping is easier with all the measurements.
Ever wonder what to do with wood coasters?  Can you find them?
Can your find the wooden coasters on this one?  They are great for details. Only 1 item on this was a tag sale.  I love curb service finds.

Curb garbage, a box full of items yeilded wooden coasters, 24 in doors I traded for other junk, scrap lumber, part of a hall tree spindle, miror from a garage sale.  They were fun to build and have inspired me with other ideas.  Thanks for the other creators that enspire the imagination of all of us.

Pattern or design used: various versions from several people.
