What can I do with these cardboard tubes?

Cheryl Markus ReynoldsSam


This is a paper tube for a plotter printer. It is about 3' tall and 1/8" thick - very sturdy. We have a bunch of these where I work. Anyone have an idea what I could do with these besides throwing them in the trash?

    I'm assuming there are either a 2" or 3" core. You can make an ottoman or side table out of them. Cut them in half and tape about 20 of them together near the top, middle and bottom so they form a circle. Paint it or cover it with fabric and add a piece of sanded and painted wood for the top for a table. If making an ottoman, place a cushion on top of it. There are also ideas for other types of furniture on Pintrest.
