Just been to my daughter's for a few days. My SIL found a cable reel at the side of the road and took it home. He rubbed it down, stained and varnished it and they now have a rather unusual coffee table.

Where do people get these wooden cable drums from please? Looking at sites online but no luck either and have asked some people but where not very helpful to say the least. We would like to obtain the real wooden cable drums to help us make furniture for both humans, animals and for storage to raise funds for the homeless/abused animals and likewise with people too. If we are lucky enough to get the cables and sell the furniture made from them, all the money will go to the animal welfare etc.

Please please can someone help us. We are in the North East of UK.

I got one from the local co-op when it was being refitted.

Perhaps try electrical wholesalers, builder's suppliers and the like.

Hi all readers
