$1000 Hose Reel

This can be done 100 different ways. You can use just long lag bolts, part of an axel w/bearings, trailer spare tire mount etc... I just did not want to throw away my non-repairable bent wheel, so I finally got that hose off the ground and organized.

I didn't know this but maybe I have some kind of wheel fetish?!

My living room coffee table - Red Bull F1 RB8 and test preseason RB9 rear wheel from Vettel. Was the 1st year I ever attended a F1 race, and last of the v8s! Then I bought glass and legs to make the table. Love it!

Iím a big fan of using used lotus parts to make other things. Iíve made my Exige chair into an office chair. Iíve made a valve cover into a coat hanger, and Iíve made a brake rotor into a clock. Next Iím working on a pen holder made out of an Evora caliper.
