This is my first room box. I made it as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law, who has a huge rolling-pin collection in her kitchen. I made the 1940s style table from scratch, with balsa wood and wire. The top and sides are painted with acrylic paint and several layers of glaze to give it a formica look. I folded a strip of aluminum from a baking pan to create the metal edge. I used wire from a metal coat-hanger to create the legs, and glued them in place with E6000 glue. Then I created a matching stool, which I wish would have turned out a bit better. There is room for improvement on the stool.
