custom furniture and one-off pieces made using aged car bonnets
 
...  
We love the idea of using a piece of automotive history and making something, not only everyday useful, but beautiful and original
 
All of our pieces of furniture are made from
old, aged and weathered car bonnets.
 
We take our time and hand-pick all of our panels and bonnets, they then go through a lengthy process of being cleaned, sanded, cut and folded.
 
Depending on the piece we are making, panels are then welded together.
   
A number of coats of   2pack (clear) is applied and finally the tops are buffed and polished. 
The 2pac coating gives the tables extra durability - a hard coat that prevents scratches and gives the tables a beautiful, smooth finish.
 
The legs and frame is then constructed using 50 x 50mm box section (sometimes thicker, depending on the size of the table).  The coating on the box section is stripped back, a process that is repeated until we have raw steel.   
 
If needed, height adjusters are then
added to the legs.  
 
We are then at the point of the build where it all comes together and the piece is finished and ready for sale!
 
Please note:  If you are looking for something specific, we love custom jobs - pop us a message and we will look at working with you to make something not only functional but original 
 
Thank you for taking an interest in our furniture – we hope you love them as much as we do!
