My neighbor was throwing out and aquarium and I thought I could use the frame for a Lathe Table. I ground down the old paint, made a frame with rollers, painted it up and his old junk is now my new lathe table. Cheers/Wudbutcher

Good job of re-purposing. Must have been some tank on there.

I also wonder what kind of fishies your neighbor was keeping in such a big glass pond! Now we’ll expect lots of turnings from you ;)

Nice Save! I am going to bet that thing is pretty solid if it held that big an aquarium.

I love it when new uses are found for old items – way to keep your eyes open and your mind searching for new uses.
