You Won’t Find These in the IKEA Catalog

You know you're a 'car-guy' when you take parts that are lying around in your garage and turn them into furniture to display in your home.    Something tells me the skilled craftsmen who built these items aren't married.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Engine Block Coffee Table


Crankshaft Lamp


Wheel Coffee Table (it's a 14" wide Lamborghini wheel!!!)

Recaro Office Chair

Ottoman (actually 'automan')

Chess Set

Gear Bookends

Engine Block Table/Wine Bottle Holder

VW Pool Table

Mustang Pool Table

Wheel Clock

Transmission Sink

End Table - Miscellaneous VW Parts

Citroen Couch

Socket Coffee Table

Van Tool Box (great for a workshop)
