Coffee Table I built for a friend. 1.5x1.5 angle iron frame top, 1"flat bar legs, 5/8" bar stock leg braces, table top made of planed boards from wooden pallets-stained and coated with spar varnish. He said he wanted a "rustic, heavy duty coffee table" so I made him one.

that looks really good, what is the finish on the steel?
It's called museum wax. 1 cup of beeswax, 1/2 cup of turpentine, 1/2 cup boiled linseed oil and a tablespoon of Japan Drier. Heat up the beeswax and add the other ingredients-apply to hot metal, take a rosebud tip on a torch and heat the metal after applying the wax. This opens up the metal and allows the wax to penetrate. It is a real pain to use, but "blacks" the mild steel while providing a rust proofing finish.

I have used aerosol spray lacquer before with good results too.

Awesome! That's cool that you were able to use wood from pallets too
ud be suprised what some palets are made of. ive seen a few that had black walnut boards on em and have seen many pallets that where completely made of oak. needless to say they didnt stay in the shape of a pallet much longer

Two winters ago I heated my house with pallet wood. There's a place nearby that goes up to the Camry factory and takes all their old pallets off their hands and then rebuilds them. They throw out all the scrap in about 8-14" pieces. I show up with a trailer and they forklift two crates on there for free! Never turned the heat on once that winter!

wheel lamp



used one of those piston key chains and used a larger bead chain and shop lamp shade. just weld a rotor of whatever bolt pattern you want to a piece of pipe. welded a lamp mounting tab on the top with a lamp kit from home depot/lowes and put the lamp wire through the valve stem hole.

couch "axle" sprayed black

wheels refinished

before i put it in the computer room, next to the lamp


my couch would have been a lot cooler if I used the bench seat from my toyota, would have fit better. I built it around the toyota bench seat, but then I got this 3rd row suburban seat out of an upholstery shop dumpster and had an interior lady spray it for 20$ and I could keep my toyota bench seat for my toyota! Some freebie bent wheels from the stealership that would have been tossed. along with used non-spec tires and used rotors welded to pipe again, and bolted the wheels on, and u-bolts to the seat frame. It needs nice fenders and the wider toyota bench seat to actually look legit.. but it works. headrests and center caps are in it now..
