Start by creating a triangle with 3 spools, 2 green rods and the red rod

Next, finish the square by creating another right angle with 2 more green rods and attaching it to the first triangle

Then insert the foam triangles in the 2 triangular holes

Finally, make the table stand by adding a green rod to each of the spools to make the image below
