How can I reuse or recycle … a really big piece of flat slate?
Had an email from Scott Tillman:
I hate throwing away old furniture, but sometimes there’s nothing left to do but mulch that old wood and move on. That’s fine except now I have the slate top to an old pool table (so its about 4′x8′x1″) and I’m trying to figure out what I can do with it.
I’m a handy-man, so no idea is too crazy. I have thought about building a new base for the pool table, but I don’t really have a rec room big enough to use it. And I _really_ don’t need a 500 lb. chalk board.
If it’s in a good condition, I guess you could use it as dining table top – but only if such a heavy and striking feature would work in your house.
The other idea that springs to mind is Freecycle in case anyone else in Scott’s area could use it as a pool table or whatever – but it sounds like he’d like to use it himself – so any suggestions? Remember crazy isn’t an issue : )
