Pewley Hill Cable Spool Table

So I found a cable spool near the Guildford train station which according to the staff was going to get thrown away… so begins the spool rolling saga.

Now pewley hill has an average gradient of: 6.2 %; at its maximum it’s: 14.5 % and is 1.5 km through the centre of a city. What’s strange is no one battered an eyelid at us rollling this huge thing through the town, or up this ridiculous hill.

The spool was too high to use as a comfortable table, so we took it apart, trimmed the metal supports and side slats to give a nice height, trimmed the bottom ring so chairs could go under more easily, sanded it up and gave it a good coat of oli and varnish. Should last for many many years!
