Old car tires are commonly usedas the decor of flower beds in the courtyard of the house or in the garden. But they can be used in the interior of the apartment. Today we will show a master class how to make a coffee table out of the bus with your own hands in eco-style. Used old tire bald tire has notthe most pleasant appearance, so we hide the entire surface of the tire behind a coating of a natural bundle. For this purpose, you can choose any rope, both natural and synthetic, twine or decorative cord. The diameter of the rope depends on the density of the finish. With a thin cord will have to work longer, but the final result will be more elegant.
How to make your own hands a coffee table from the tire
To make a coffee table out of the bus with your own hands, you will need:
- old tire;
- two plywood wheels with a diameter slightly smaller than the tire;
- rope, harness or cord;
- glue gun or super-glue in a tube;
- drill, self-tapping screws;
- finish coat (special wax or varnish);
Attach the plywood wheels to the tire from both sides. For this, you can use a drill, screws and a screwdriver, or glue the plywood with a super glue. By the way, you can provide that the lid of the plywood is opened, and in the table you could store things. Then the plywood circle needs to be attached on hinges or to make the handles from the rope with which the lid will be completely removed. Then proceed to the decorative finish of the tablerope. We start from the middle of the table. It will be more convenient to use an adhesive gun, rather than glue in a tube. Apply the glue on the middle of the countertop, make a small circle out of the rope and begin to weave the tabletop from the center to the edges in a circle. Do not forget to constantly use the glue so that during the operation of the table the rope cover does not peel off. Turn the table top down and continue to spin around in a circle, completely covering the rubber tires. The bottom of the coffee table can not be braided. Cut the rope and fasten the end well with glue. If there is a desire, then it is possible to attach small legs or wheels to the bottom. Finished coffee table cover the finish coat. The coffee table from the tires with your own hands is ready!
