Here is a unique coffee table. I have been building these for the past 6 years. It has had great reviews and is top seller for many years. Top opens for storage and is hinged and is supported by a cylinder to hold open. Remove all charcoal from inside to remove odor and is sprayed with several coats of lacquer to prevent charcoal from getting on items inside storage area. Top has saw marks and is distressed to give a rustic look. 6/22/2013

Looks great and makes a nice base for a coffee table. I can’t believe it took you 6 years to empty that barrel so you could make a coffee table out of it….;))

Welcome to LJ’s.
That is indeed a unique piece, not for every household but I can see that in the Man Cave … or a wine tasting room.

My bad. This table did not take 6 years to build. lol. I have built over 600 of these in the last 6 years. I have corrected my sentence for this post. I just caught it when shatner posted his comment.:)

@shatner thanks for bring this to my attention. I was eager to post this so I didn’t read what I had wrote! Thanks!

It looks great and solid. Like the use of the barrel and the design on the legs. Love the extra storage. Great job!

Very nice. You sell 100 of those tables a year? Do you have a website, or a store?

Well done.It’s a really unique coffee table.The perfect coffee table complements your decor, of course.It is important to ensure that your new coffee table is tough enough for your needs, especially if you are likely to be placing a number of objects on it, such as books, remote controls and ornaments.
