You’ve probably seen them multiple times and thought they looked interesting and even found them t be funny. Cable spools are industrial items that, like pallets, can be revived and reused. They can be used to make coffee tables or side tables and, even though they’re not as versatile as wooden pallets, they can be used in a variety of projects.
Turning a cable spool into a coffee table is extremely easy. Its shape does most of the work. If you simply change its position and place the two symmetrical round pieces on the top and bottom, you basically get a coffee table. The circular gap in the middle can either be covered up or used for large candles or decorations. The effort you have to make for tuning the spool into a table is minimal. It’s why such DIY projects are very popular.
