    All I did was spot this at a swapmeet and add some brackets to the bottom for a shelf.

The legs are old I beam that I drilled graduating holes in and then polished inside. The cross braces are scrap channel from my step van project used because of the green patina. The foot pads and cross brace tabs are cold plate, all bolted together with allen bolts and then cleared.

    The other side of this tank wasn't near as pretty as this side.

    This sucker will be wall art as soon as I build a bracket strong enought to hang it with.

    Finally finished it, sitting at the wife's salon. Also, I can't take credit for the design on this, found the idea somewhere on the web...

  14. What else do you do with a roach of a Model A door?
    Whack 6" out of it, age a number onto it and hang it up.
    I guess I could have just chucked it on the scrap metal pile.

    You could make a cool little lamp out of that old oil bottle. Just get a glass drill bit and cut a hole in the bottom of the bottle& run your cord up through it, then put your bulb socket in the top of the spout, and finally put a small lamp shade on it.

    Here's some stuff I've been working on for myself, friends and customers.

    My wife found this and wanted it converted into a spice rack.

    Thanks! I'm working on a few other things that I'll post when I'm done. In the meantime, here are 3 more.

    This is a lamp I made from a '57 Caddy floor speaker. IT was really hard to photograph.
