I had this box full of drum-kit parts in the attic for years, it was never opened after our move to Portugal. Time for some recycling or better up-cycling! An off-cut piece of almond slap was used to make the top of this occasional table. Reclaimed pine and oak was used for the drawer. Drum-kit parts used: 3 floor tom legs and mountings, bass drum wrenches and clips. The box isn’t empty by far, so more up-cycling projects with these parts are due to turn up!

Here’s a video on the making of>

It looks like an allien box. Realy interesting upcycling combination. Those metal parts and thick board with it’s imperfections is just great.

Upcycling-repurposing-wabi sabi.

You have a way of reinterpreting materials to make the sum of the parts a new whole!

Good to see you posting video again.
