Project: coffee table.

I had some extra cedar left over from the house.  My dad had a tailgate from a 97-f-350 dually in almost mint condition.  I needed a coffee table, so I thought maybe I would merge the two together.  Turned out pretty good, pretty happy with it.  Free tailgate, about 20-30 bucks of cedar and a 80 dollar piece of glass.

Custom, one off coffee table for a hundred smackers.

Below are some shots of the steps  pops and I did to get it to the final stage.  Blackberry images are obvious…

Built the frame around the tailgate

Wanted the table wider then the tailgate so we added wider sides to the frame.
