    Recycled Alloy........Coffee Table anyone?

    I was recently unfortunate enough to bend the two drivers side alloys on my B7.......but have decided to recycle them as furniture!

    Here's my new coffee table:

    Cool where did you get the glass from? What materials did you need?

    I have a brand new nice 17" merc wheel boxed which will go for a pittance on ebay i guess was going to do the same ages ago but never got around to it.

    Just went to my local glass centre........30 for 52cm x 6mm piece of toughened glass with a polished edge.

    It's held in place with replacement 'Richbrook' tax disc holder 'stickies'.

    The wheel itself is just mounted on top of a simple black/chrome coffee table.

    The strip LED's were from ebay and were intended for lighting a fish tank!

    Total cost (excluding replacing the wheel) 60.

    I'm now working on a 'matching' computer chair with the other one, so watch this space!

    Looks nice. I've got a Formula 1 wheel I've been wanting to do this with for ages, but I haven't got my arse round to getting the glass.
