The reason for this coffee table build is for a barter trade with one of my friends. Who happens to be a local artist and hosts art shows every so often. The barter trade consists of a coffee table for a painting. After talking to my friend and getting his input on characteristics that he would like the coffee table to have. He only had two requirements: an industrial look and just do your thing (whatever I wanted). I decided to go with an old industrial cart look made from old pallets. I figured this coffee table could double as storage for some of his art supplies. Then by adding wheels and a handle this coffee table turns into a makeshift suitcase while he goes to one of his art shows.
