this was very easy and fast to do, fits in great at the lake cabin! Just red paint half , paint the other half white and attached a painted blue board to the back top!

RE: here's another use for wood spool

HELP? This is JUST WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING TO DO (custom folk art designs on wood spool/round boards, for decorating house and garden)... Where does one FIND wood spools/round boards this SIZE (22" diameter or WIDER)???
I'm at wit's end... nothing on Ebay (15" diameter seems to be the max for 'craft' round boards) , Google searches turn up MANUFACTURERS for utility companies (so are well beyond my price range)... I'm looking for the discarded ones to 'recycle'... ANY IDEAS??
Thanks...
Shea

Shea, find a local electrician, and ask him to save them for ya. I have about 6 of various sizes, we are rural, that might make a difference, but if nothing else ask the electric company. I am sure you could have several, they just lay around getting old around here!
Aside from that, no suggestions.

Lowes has round wood disks in many sizes. If you are in to paying for them.
