What Do You Do With A Free Electrical Wire Spool?

Here's what I did with a big electrical spool someone gave me.  One of the tops I used as a picnic table, in my backyard.  That left another top and the 'slats' that hold the whole thing together.  I made several signs, and JH had the fun part of drilling holes and adding wire hangers.  I'm anxious to see how many of get the 'No L' thing....none of my neighbors (JH included) gets it!!!

Ah, Yes..I remember my parents using these as a picnic table, too....and ooooh...great idea...I can put MY 8-track player and speakers on some baby spools!!! Yes...I have a WORKING 8-track player in my shop! (I listen to Tom Jones, Bee Gees...OH!! Am I giving away our age???) As a matter of fact, I received Eagles Greatest Hits 8-Track, from my 28 yr old son, for Christmas...he just doesn't get it though! lol Posted: 9:38 pm on December 27th

My grandmother had one of these spools as a picnic table on her patio when I was a child. For years I thought that was its intended purpose! I actually had three smaller spools (found by the curb) that I stacked pyramid style and used as a stereo/speakers stand when I was a teenager. (Back when the stereo and the speakers were all pretty big. I recall that it had a turntable AND an 8-track player...) Posted: 11:00 pm on December 23rd

Thanks, you creative woman!
