I have built a good amount of tables so far, but this one may be my favorite, in terms of "character". After receiving a "Hey, can you use this?" text, I sourced the spool a few days later from a friend. I was surprised at delivery to see that the spool had such a beautiful blue/deep-sage green patina, as his picture did it no justice. I went to work right away building a X-type trestle base, and we decided to finish the base in a color-scheme to match. We left the "Southwire" stamping, and attached the base to the top with carriage bolts for a super-beefy/rusting character that I felt matched the look and purpose of the original spool. This table will steal the conversation in any room, of that I am sure. JWAC recommends a glass top cover, however, for a family with young ones. Want us to build you a "wire-spool farmhouse table"? Give us a ring! We can source the spool, and finish the legs in any color of your choosing!
