Default Man cave Project !

I'm still waiting on my 275 project to come back from the paint shop. The garage has been revamped with new floor paint and white washed walls.
Still bored waiting so I decided on a project with a pile of rubbish that was about to go down to the dump.
A bit of lateral thinking needed but it is something I had thought of a while ago. Only had two items to buy, the rest made from the pile of junk. I also found a stainless steel bowl in the kitchen ( don't tell the wife ! ).

Come back tomorrow for the next instalment, can you tell what it is yet ?

Satin black paint and aerosol expanding foam was needed too. Lots of tube cutting , 14 straight sections of 1/2" stainless tube.

Thanks ! Its 24" diameter so makes the ideal coffee table. I saw a full size Pratt & Whitney radial engine converted to a table. It was fabulous but so was the price at over 10k !

Why did you tell us? GRR! I had figured it out looking at the picture, and then you gave the game away. Very nice!

Really good show. When I am between projects I am trying to tidy up, but the next project starts about half way through!
