Make a DIY Industrial Style Scaffold Table

Mention scaffold furniture and most people think of a table made from scaffold tubes and boards. Make with used scaffold boards and upcycle your credibility.  Robust yet easy to make, and equally at home in the dining room or even in the office as a scaffold desk.  Combine with a couple of scaffold benches to make a picnic table for the patio.
