    My Little Project

    All this "constructing" going on here lately, made me actually want to do a project. Last time RV'ing we decided we need a little table to put between us when we sit outside the trailer to read and relax. Something small to sit books and maybe a Margarita glass on. So I found a plan on the internet for a folding stool and just enlarged it a little.

    All except the hardware is made of reclaimed lumber. Most from an old waterbed frame my nephew gave me. It works pretty good. My wife likes it and we all know that is the important thing....

    Great use for that water bed. All most likes like them old tv trays they had back in the day. Great job man.

    Thanks Stephen. I forgot to mention, the dowels come from one of those old wooden collapsible clothes drying racks. I know, I am a wood pack rat!

    Great re-purposing project, Paul. It pays to pack rat.

    Nice table Paul, It's fun repurposing old material. Nice save
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Nice work Paul!

    I built a similar design to hold the garbage disposal I use for crushing apples for cider, but mine looks more like something the Clampets would have made and less like something out of a sharper image catalog
