Aaron and I bought two wooden mail sorters this summer and hung on to them for 6 months, waiting to turn them into tables in our new home.
On the first one, we made legs from black pipe and flanges.
The second mail sorter has a base that I asked our trusty welder Kirk to make. (It's resting on paper towels until I add the caps that will prevent the legs from scratching our wood floors!)
I love the sheen of the old wood, the wear on the edges, and the wire dividers. There are even some original metal tags for labeling the individual slots.
