Tyler from Plastolux had a hankering for a pair of Eero Saarinen side tables, but he wasn't quite excited by their steep price. After scouring all the usual sources for a deal but coming up empty-handed, he decided to try to make his own. Can you guess what he used for the bases?

The bases are old Bose speaker stands! Tyler scored the pair for $70. He cut the tops out of MDF board, and painted them black. Pretty clever.
