Coffee table

Coffee table

Maker: Pete McKay

Location: Toronto, Ontario

I was inspired to submit after seeing the Book/ Curio Shelf by Troy Chelsberg. Not because my woodworking is up to his level but because of his and my use of “junk”. My coffee table is made of the left over picket sign sticks from the Ontario teacher strikes of January 2020. They are your very basic pine, I believe, and wouldn’t even do much for you in a fire but gave me one more opportunity to be creative. Lots of glue and poly but no hardware. I’m a local Union leader and now have it in my office.
