This post is an overview of the build. If you want more info please visit my personal blog post. Building a Table by Re-Purposing a Chandelier

Watch it be built on YouTube

I started out with the chandelier my wife hated.

I used a cut off wheel to remove anything that wasn’t going to be part of the base.

I aligned the legs using a scrap piece of plywood clamped in the vise

Used Tie wire to hide the holes where the electrical wire came through.

Painted wire a frame to match and blend together.

Used shop made circle cutting jig to cut the top to size.

Completed table
