Great ideas that inspire us all.
I Just got this Grinder from my father in-law, Started cleaning it up & just kept going. It's now Functional Art
i had this in the friday art show a while back, but i really think it belongs here...
its a 30 fiberglass grille shell, that i restored and striped. then added some neon and some jigsawed flames with some internally mounted neon to edge light the plexiglass. then, popped the clock button right in the middle.
This is one of the best threads and some of the most unique shit. Really would love to own half this stuff!!

Here is a coke loveseat that I built. Lots of them around now, not when I built this one though!
I finally got my desk done! It has a 50s metal desk under it and I keep the computer in the grill. It was already cut up as a trailer when I got it and lots of bondo so no cherry 55 was cut up for this!
Here is the latest table in the series I made up for an upcoming art show. 57 Chev column, wheel and etched glass top....

I have done a couple of versions of these
Valves are V-12 cat (heavy) industrial and what looks like serpentine belt pulleys are oil seals for industrial compressors, as are the bearings and cages.
The tallest one is about 24 inches and around 50 pounds.
Accidentally dropping one on the floor caused a 6 inch crescent moon shape about 1/2" deep.
That's HEAVY err cool... Far out Man. I'd like to have something like that in my Art gallery someday.
