Hi all,

So, I pulled this block the other day (4 yrs ago) and turned it into the below.

Two things :

1. Never stub your toe on it, because when you get mad and kick it, you'll have body parts to find.
2. Find it a semi-permanent spot to live, moving it around stinks.

Yes, the below are my chip/m&m/quaso/pretzel bowls, they work amazing (and are dishwasher safe!!!) :blink:













So, since these photos the wood 4x4 blocks have been replaced with welded upside down piston cups and the extension cord/christmas lights have been replaced with red LEDs (off an outlet with a dimmer switch).

Many, many compliments, and many, many broken toes (not really, but close enough).

Let me know what you think! : D

Thanks for the comment! I would love to post some new pics but I'm in the middle of a move so the table has been stored for the moment. :sad: BUT next time it's out I'll try to remember to snap some shots!

Love it! I've been thinking about using a cylinder head as a center channel stand.

Thanks for the kind words again guys :hail:

The idea for the cylinder head is actually a pretty cool idea, and actually the whole car theme could be taken a lot farther (just need time and money! two things that never come together!)

@bambino - totally agree, done it myself many a time, I will keep you updated and you'll be the first to know! : )

Was when I made it!!! But, needless to say, you get married, things get moved (and this thing sucks to move around) then things that were important aren't important any more.

Another sad story, right? Well, where we're moving, there's an unfinished basement!!! Man Cave (and laundry room)!!!!! :yay:

I really dig the snack bowls. What a fun concept! I have a bunch of old drivers sitting around, might have to 'borrow' that idea.
