Repurposed Modern Steel Furniture

Posted by joel hester at April 07. 2009
Hello. My name is Joel Hester. I'm a furniture maker currently based in Dallas, Texas and i wanted to show you some of the things i have been working on for the last couple of years. Of all the things i build, im most excited about the tables and art i am building out of 20-40 year old American cars and trucks. I cut and weld all my own frames and take the sheetmetal skin from the cars and form them into table tops. i only clean and clear coat the tops. I do no color modification. The color and patterns you see took year and years to create. Obviously, each piece is truly unique. Thanks for looking. -joel http://weldhouse.com/ Before: P1020424.JPG After: P1030662.JPG Before: P1030495.JPG After: P1030889.JPG Before: '57 Chevy Pickup After: orange65-shadow

Hello Joel. Your furniture looks pretty good. How long does it usually take you to come up with a new idea and create it? Thanks for sharing your work!

Actually it looks ridiculous but I like your idea, you use your creativity and being resourceful in making a very nice table.
