Industrial style coffee table made from salvaged car wheel including the tire.
The table base is fabricated from mild steel and salvaged car brake disk, with toughened glass top and exposed dome nut fixings.
A must for car fans, petrol heads, man caves & industrial interiors!
I wanted to make a really cool coffee table, and I wanted to use something which is often sent to landfill that is incredibly bad for the environment and takes a long time to degrade or is very toxic to burn. Car tires ticked both of those boxes.
The raw salvaged tire and brake disk mount are very hard and industrial, by teaming them with the steel base & toughened glass table top they are transformed into an industrial chic designer homeware.
Soon we are launching chairs to match these tables – made from salvaged car seats with metal framework – watch this space!
You can either send me a wheel of yours, perhaps off an old car you loved? Or I can salvage one for you. I usually find my wheels for free, if you have specific requirements for your wheel and I need to buy it this cost will be added to the price of the table – you will be invoiced separately for this.
Any vehicle wheel can be turned into a coffee table, from formula one, dirt truck, lorry, army truck, car, van, bus – ignite your imagination!
You can choose to have your alloy refurbished and sprayed the colour of your choice , this means I will sand the metal part of the wheel, fill any holes & blemishes before priming, spray painting and lacquering your wheel. If you want a very polished & new looking rim you will need your wheel refurbished as salvaged wheels tend to have signs of wear and tear.
If you do not choose to have your wheel refurbished it will be cleaned, but any scuffs, scratches etc will still be visible through the glass. You are also welcome to send a wheel that has already been refurbished.
Choose to have your own logo added to the centre of the wheel, great for businesses and client waiting areas. Or choose the brand of car sticker to show in the centre, or we can keep the one the wheel came with
Please click the options in the drop down menu, on ordering you can specify the colour you want – ie; dark blue, black, red, pink etc. If there is a specific RAL colour you need that I have to get specially mixed there may be an extra charge for this dependant on the cost of it.
Choose to leave the base natural and have it clear lacquered, or match the colour to your rim.
When you purchase this item I will source a wheel and recreate this piece, unless you would like to supply the wheel – or have a specific one in mind.
The purchase price listed is for labour and welding materials & equipment only – NOT the wheel, unless it is FREE.
(I currently have two free SAAB wheels here ready to go!)
