The base is an old radiator cover from the original house - I don't know if my great uncle or my grandfather made. I took out the louvered doors to make a shelf for my sister's pc tower to sit on. The top is an old door from the attic that didn't work once they wallboarded up there. Since it had the insets, we filled them with leftover bamboo flooring. Once we cut a hole for cords, it was ready to go.
