Built a manly coffee table
Hi guys,
I know this has been done before, but I wanted to share this nonetheless. The wife has been chewing my ears for a while now because she wanted a new coffee table for the living room.
As her every wish is my command (mainly for for the sake of peace and quiet), I went ahead and made one.
It's pretty cool that it acts as a coffee table and a bar both at the same time. Tim Taylor would probably love it! (ugh ugh)Big Grin
The glass top is a makeshift solution and will be replaced with a larger one but the glasser needs another few days to fabricate it.

The block is a 1968 made in Mexico 302 with a busted cylinder wall that was put to death in a 1965 Mustang Hardtop raced in classic racing.
I also have a 1966 289 lying here that encountered the same fate in another race. Maybe I'll do another one.....

That is indeed the manliest coffee table I've ever seen Mike. I suggest you use a more manly name for it though...like "grog bench" or "lager trestle", and maybe use the lifter bores as Cuban cigar holders.

My mustang is named Beth.

Beth I hear you calling and I'll fix you right this time.

Just a few more paychecks and I'll get right back to you.
Oh Beth what can I do? Beth what can I do?
Yep, that is really cool!!! same here I should make one for my cave!!!!!!
You could def make some money making and selling those. I must make one now. Thats too cool for school.
