There’s a saying in electronic/maker/hacker circles. Sometimes, you just need enough junk before you can start doing cool stuff. You need a “critical mass” of stuff. This trestle table came together because of a “critical mass” of junk. The pressure treated base was scrap pieces from a variety of sources (work, my own projects, etc) and the top came from a neighbor’s remodel. As any maker will tell you: if you don’t collect the stuff somewhere, you don’t get the idea to use it. The process works and I got a cute little grilling table out of it.
I enjoyed this build – I just wish that front right corner didn’t dip so much. A matchbook oughta fix that little twist.
