You see trap, I see table!

As soon as I saw this trap, I knew I wanted to turn it into a table.  Never mind that I have several almost finished projects, I couldn’t wait.  I went over it to make sure all the nails were in tight.  After cleaning it, I drilled some pilot holes and screwed the legs into the widest side, which I wanted to be the bottom.  I wanted to class it up a little, so I applied Danish oil, in Dark Walnut.  I am not sure whether this is an Alaskan crab trap or not.  I have not spent much time on the coast, and this more resembles a lobster trap from out east, but I can’t say for sure.  I wish I was better at taking pictures, but then I wouldn’t have as much time for my projects.  It is also the season of dark, so pictures are even harder to take.  I plan to have this table at the Bazaar in December.
