I've been hanging onto this salvaged 4in gate valve for a long time so I could make a table with it. Well, I finally scrounged some flanges for it and decided to do it now because I don't have enough other projects going on.
In California we had a great entry porch that just called for a big bench. I stumbled across a pew that needed some work and was perfect for the space.
When I rebuilt the Wells 8M bandsaw I wanted to lower it but I couldn't let those cast iron legs go to waste, so I made a coffee table with them.
The wife wanted a place to sit and put on her shoes. I wanted to make something with a limestone top.
