Well, there's an odd title. But when I picked up a Naval Training Device box or case I knew it would make a fun table with some storage.
I am sure the US Navy did not ever think whatever this originally was would end up as a table. I hope they are okay with it ;).
I don't have a lot of process pictures, but I used 4 spindles (purchased at the same garage sale) and some reclaimed oak to make a frame or base for the case. I measured on the spindles about half way up so the case could rest on the top of the spindles.
I secured the frame to the legs.
I then wedged the case into the base--it is a tight fit so I didn't secure it any other way. I painted the case and frame white, the spindles 4 different colors.
I think it would be fun in the kitchen opened up as a bar.
But would work well in any room that needs a little storage.
The dog approves!
