Got bored, made a table.

I had some old wheels sitting in my garage and decided to actually use them for something. I just drilled two holes in the lip of them and bolted them together... then put a sheet of glass on them. Boom, got a nifty coffee table.




...now, what to do with my old jacked up front clam. Maybe a cool office desk?... Shelving unit?... Giant shoe rack?

Nice table

How about a Kegerator Clam? Then you would have beer to set on your new table.

You might want to round off the corners before the inevitable happens and you (or someone else) hit it with your leg or.... wait, just place orange cones there.

The corners are a bit rounded... but maybe I could round them a bit more. My Jack Russell terrier is 13 years old and she doesn't see very well anymore... and she already came running inside, tried to leap onto the couch, and smacked her head on the bottom of the glass. I guess it'll take everyone a little getting used to.

I have quite a couple random rims that I need to make tables out of, or something.

I have a 997 turbo wheel, a quattroporte wheel, and an m3 wheel.

Cost too much to ship. It is like shipping a small dinning room table.

Beautiful items on this thread! I'm starting to think about all the junk we have in our garage and what it might become.
