Homemade wooden table in rubbish in Whitechapel
it takes a lot of work to make something this bad.
scrap furniture sometimes appears to have a lot of time (and some thought) invested in it by someone with very little diy know-how only to be thrown onto the street as it has no real resale value when no longer needed. very sad as someone had put some kind of effort into making this, even joining together two pieces of wood with a mirror plate fixing just to make a single table leg. the streets of London are littered with scrap wood and thrown away furniture so why bother joining two pieces of wood together to make one single table leg? i guess that this table out outgrew its use. 'homemade' can be hassle but so is ikea. love it, keep botching.
