    Just started hometalk - my first post. I just bought 3 spools. One large going to make outside table with lg wheels to move about and with the hole in the middle easy to apply an umbrella. The other 2 will be made into side tables they are med size like yours. Cant wait to start. I bought mine at Habitat For Humanity. Yours looks great!

    Love this table. My daughter's SO is an electrician and he's going to get me a couple of spools. I like the idea of the rope, I was trying to figure out how to make that area look good. Instead of trying to cover it with wood or something. Now I know how to do it. you all are so creative!
