Yes, I mentioned a new record table. It was in the photo I shared in my last post. I forgot I hadn't actually posted about it...

It was great. I sold it at one of the markets.
I regretted it.
I made another one. Not as pretty. No hairpin legs. This one was a stool with a top when I found it. A ratty top which I promptly dispatched to the great broken stool home in the sky.
All I did to make this table was give the legs a wash, buy new rubber stoppers as it only had one left, dust off the old gramophone record and use a
I put it in the living room and for ages I used it to hold my coffee cup as I watched TV or worked on the laptop. Then one night I forgot myself and put my feet on it.

Out came the liquid nails again. This time I glued the new record to the old one, making it double thickness.
Its back holding the remotes right now. And I have a footstool for my feet.
It pays to remember what things are for. Footstools are for feet. Brittle 33.5 record side tables are for a cup of coffee. And perhaps a bowl of popcorn. A small one.
