Hey All,

I thought I'd put this on as it has so many uses. It's an old chair where the back has gone but the gas lifter still functions. I have remove the back and seat and mounted a table on it and as it was a chair it spins for spraying work and raises up and down as a sanding table and you could put sides on a couple of rolling pins and you have a rolling extension for the tables saw any other thoughts let me know.

That is an excellent idea for an all-purpose table.
   As a paint/spray table, you can drill shallow holes in it where ever you like and put in pencil sharpened dowel standoffs of any length in the holes. You can tap in any size of nails as standoffs also and paint/spray away. Basically use any home made or purchased painting standoffs you can think of.
   As a photography platform it is perfect for photographing your projects in work and your completed assemblies. Drape a towel or cloth over it and photograph your projects from any position.
It will allow you to rotate the item for the best lighting and shadows.
Perfect for indoor and outdoor photos.
   Being portable, you could take it with you and photograph your projects with all kinds of backgrounds, flower gardens, fields, lakes and rivers.
   I'll have to keep my eye out for one of those on junk day.
Thanks for the great idea.

Udie.
           I like the idea of the dowel stand offs because you can take them out and if I make a dowel holder underneath somewhere to hold the different sizes and pull them out when needed brilliant.
A photo table as well all from a broken chair. Great stuff thanks for the input.
IF ALL FAILS IT'S STILL A CHAIR. LOL

Roly - Seeing that you already have the rotating turntable part, all you need is exactly what you said, another piece of wood with holes for repositionable dowel standoffs.  Take a look at the July 23/13 WTN (Wood Toy News) article and video. I have linked the WTN for your quick reference. You could use a piece of 1/4" thick pegboard and 1/4" dowels and your done.
