Fantastic project @Starkers_17, many thanks for sharing. It looks brilliant and I'm sure your handiwork will inspire other community members. It was also great to see you share your barn door recently. It looks like you've got a lot of skills and experience to share. We look forward to seeing more of your projects on Workshop soon.


Thanks again,

Re: Recycled coffee table

@BillieJo Thanks. Tools used were

  • metal detector(always good when working with recycled timber)
  • thicknesser
  • dust extractor
  • Dewalt cold cut chop
  • mig welder
  • angle grinder
  • plunge saw with a guide
  • sander
  • drill
  • clamps
  • Festool Domino

I have collected my tools over a long period of time and all of the above are not needed to do the job but do make it easier when you have them. You definately need a welder, angle grider, saw, drill and clamps. Hope this helps.

Hi @Starkers_17 


What an awesome project start to finish.


I love the fact you used recycled materials and turned it into a magnificent peice.


I'm saving up for a thicknesser and am so excited to give it a go.


Great idea for a metal detector. 


Love to see more of your upcoming work


Kind regards Rob 👍
