Recycled timber and steel coffee table

Having an Impact
Having an Impact

This impressive coffee table was made using timber from 50-year-old bed posts and 20-year-old steel.

The project


I turned 50-year-old bed posts and 20-year-old steel into a coffee table. 


I used the following tools in this project:


  • Metal detector (always good when working with recycled timber)


  • Thicknesser


  • Dust extractor


  • DeWALT cold cut saw


  • Mig welder


  • Angle grinder


  • Plunge saw with a guide


  • Sander


  • Drill


  • Clamps


  • Joiner.


I have collected my tools over a long period of time. All of the above are not needed to do the job but they do make it easier. You definitely need a welder, angle grinder, saw, drill and clamps for this project.
