this glass-topped table has a metal frame. i got it on sale for 50.$, instead of 90.$! it's just Perfect for cutting and all sorts of things. the puter will not be here, when i get things fixed in the living room. see my kitchen pass-through? we will be putting green-plastic-coated hardware cloth in the spot. that way i can hang things on both sides, kitchen items in the kitchen and crafty things on this side.
