    Following on from our last table build, this happened

    3CEBC4E1-F7F7-4D74-96F2-E79C01C3F6C2.jpeg 3D3D4B7E-F322-4FF2-BF5B-9C6BFBD9A182.jpeg E363A626-C5D7-4F17-A4F6-E221168B7903.jpeg

    It really is made from junk that I’ve collected when going for a walk every evening

    The legs are old roofing battens, the rails are old bed slats and the top is two layers of laminate flooring. First one screwed to frame second one stuck with pound shop epoxy. Paint is a tin of Dulux Matt emulsion that was out for rubbish. Filtered through a pair of tights and it was good to go. Brown dye on the edges is a bit of brown boot polish.

    Total cost is £1 for a tube of pound shop epoxy

    It’s not perfect but I’m quite pleased with how it’s come out

    One suggestion.
    Get some nice oak strip wood and frame the table edges. Will finish it off and protect the edges too.

    Great project that reflects the current time, simple and good looking design.

    That's a great achievement. A wonderful representation of our day.

    and if that was for sale on wheeler dealers they're be really pleased selling it for £2 as they would have doubled their investment. :laughing::laughing:

    That will cost money.
    @Parm will have to scavenge some more.

    Still a good build.

    Are they your blue toe nails, or did you use your own tights?

    May I be bold enough to suggest two, obviously start with empty ones and gradually build up to the full versions, hopefully a couple of cases of said beverage should end with the desired test weight.

    It was a bit bendy in the middle with just a single layer of laminate, so this got added
