Recycling an Old Bedside Table
I have had this old bedside table sitting in my garage for a few years now. I originally had tools in the drawers and my miter saw screwed to the top of it. The problem was, it was too short to be practical as a saw table and it didn't have an easy way to move it around the workshop.
So, I built myself a better bench for the saw and set out to fix up the old table. I wanted a new table for the telephone and a place to put the phone books and such. The drawers were too small and flimsy to hold the weight and size of the phone books so I decided to completely remove the drawers, put in shelves and a new door on the front. I also painted it to match my refurbished coffee table.
