How To Make a Cable Spool Coffee Table
Cable spool furniture is a great way to repurpose wood spools and create something unique and beautiful for your home. With a few tools and some elbow grease, you can build a one-of-a-kind cable spool coffee table that can be a wonderful addition to any home.
Gather Supplies and Tools
First, you’ll need to gather all your supplies and tools you’ll need to build your cable spool coffee table.
- Cable spool
- Wooden boards and screws
- Power Drill
- Drill Bits
- Paint and foam brush
Preparing the Cable Spool
Once all your supplies and tools are gathered, you’ll need to prepare the cable spool. Start by carefully examining the spool for any sharp edges or splinters. Sand down any rough edges and make sure the spool is smooth. Once it is smooth and sanded, apply two coats of paint to the spool. Let the paint dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Assemble the Table Base
The next step to build your cable spool coffee table is to assemble the table base. Start by using two wooden boards and attaching them to the cable spool using screws. Make sure the boards are even and you will use the power drill to secure the screws in place. Once the table base is finished, it will look like a hollow box.
Add Finishing Touches
The final step to building your cable spool coffee table is to add some finishing touches. You can use additional screws to attach the wooden boards to the top of the coffee table, or use wood glue and clamps to secure them in place. You can also add additional decorations such as handles or knobs to the table to make it more unique.
Finished Cable Spool Coffee Table
Once your cable spool coffee table is finished, you can now show off your new furniture piece to friends and family. Now you can enjoy your one-of-a-kind cable spool coffee table and appreciate the hours of hard work and effort that went into creating this wonderful piece of furniture.
