Here’s a creative way to make a flagman table. You can probably find one of these signs at a junkyard or steal one from under-construction streets. (Just don’t blame us if you get caught for stealing)
Most of my work is with “trash”, and in the spirit of freegans and readymakers everywhere, I try to spend as little money as possible. In addition to saving me some trouble, saving money is often a simple way to save the environment — use less crap. The peeling paint and dings in the sign become an integral part of the aesthetic.
