Introduction: Car Part Chess Set

This is the chess set i made for my senior project it started out as a bunch of old car parts that had no purpose and was destined to be scraped. So i decided to give them a second chance at life and turned them into a usable furniture decor peace. The whole project is rather bolted or welded together then painted and clear coated to protect it from rust. I made the seats out of plywood and burned a pattern into it with a torch to get a older looking design that matches the rest. It didn't cost much to make this project because almost everything was recycled from other objects. The funniest part is trying to guess what parts they are.

    could I get some car parts from u?

    LOL! great Instructable! anyway I was just kidding.

    now that is pretty cool! awesome idea and well done!

    I really like the chess set. Very creative. I would personally consider upgrading the camshaft stools - especially if you are looking to sell them. They are not really load bearing and I've seen them snap in an engine. Perhaps a setup like this:
