I had two long boxes that provided most of the material for the table top. I used the width of the boxes to determine the width of my coffee tables, but you can cut yours to whatever width you desire. The length of the table is determined by how many beams you can get from your cardboard. Cut the cardboard into sections that are 30 ribs wide. (Your cardboard should be all the same type so you can can measure pieces by just counting ribs.) Score the pieces into sections that are8-8-7-7 ribs wide.
One late afternoon I stopped into my local Goodwill store. Immediately, I spied this vintage child's rocker in the furniture area priced at a measly $6.99. Old, worn out, and saggy, I was a little interested, but not quite sold until I saw someone else become very interested in it. It was ON! I slinked around looking at other junk, all crouched down and ready to pounce if he put it back. I spent a minute or so looking for wooden trays and then peeked back around and saw he had passed on it.
While I was browsing around our local ReStore (Habitat for Humanity resale shop) I came across their stacks of old windows. They do test for lead paint,which is nice - a lead free guarantee! I was leaning towards making a coffee table, because we didn't have one...so this was a very nice treasure hunting trip.
