What beautiful colors and graphics!
Put together with a small black iron chair it is perfect for tea.
All tied up with string. This is the way I found it.
I attached a piece of plywood and it holds all the slats together.
No more strings and it gives me something to attach the base to.
A simple wrought iron base
Voila...a table!
What beautiful colors and graphics!

This old Witch Hazel barrel top was so pretty that I knew I wanted to make a table out of it. After being lost in a  sea of junk for several months I ran across it and also a wroght iron table base...what could be more perfect. The barrel top was just slats tied together with string when I bought it so after attaching the slats togeter with a piece of pylwood, drilling out a couple of holes for the bolts on the table base it was just a matter of attaching it together.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
