We have made a few pieces of furniture using wooden spools and we love them!  These spools are typically used by the power company or utility company and come in various sizes.

We found our spool top from a contractor friend who does work with our local power company.  You may be able to find spools on Craigslist, when we looked, there were a few to choose from in our area.

The table top we used for this project is 48″ wide.  The finished table height is 34″ tall.
