Cutting boards as side tables

Recommended Posts

After almost five years, my side tables finally packed it in, so I replaced them with some inexpensive bamboo cutting boards. I put a few coats of urathane on them and, I must say, I think they look pretty darn good and feel fairly sturdy.

Not sure how long they'll hold up, but for less than 20 bucks, I can't complain.

I feel like I have taken good care of my Vision - always covered and cleaned. But my side tables make it look like it's been absolutely neglected (already warping after only a couple of years)!  Thought about getting a tinner to do some custom work for me, but might go this route instead. I know I will pay a small fortune for the custom work, which would be worth it... but affordable seems more attractive right now. Thanks for the idea, @K-ville!

I am really interested ton see how well the bamboo will hold up outdoors. I think fairly well but? For what you have into in in materials its worth a shot. Looks great!

Would be interesting to know how the urethane prevents mold from forming.   My bamboo shelves form mold (under covered area all the time) and it's not from contact to food residue.   Been thinking about replacing them with HDPE shelves although I like the looks of the bamboo.  We do live where it's fairly humid and the only thing that removes the mold is a solution containing bleach.  Wonder if this is the finish on the bamboo or what.
