Made with traffic signs from the junkyard, this bar table is relatively easy to build for those with soldering and working with metal abilities. It has a 6mm thick acrylic top with LED´s on the side to give the lit board effect.

The table foot is made by an ancient blacksmith who copied it from the original one that belongs to Ganso 'The Goose'. 

Hope you like it!

Had to solder this little piece of tube on the screw bar, so it would fit to be soldered inside the table tube.
Notice the table tube already with the soldered screw bar. The nut and lock washer are holding the tube together with the foot table.
The flat bar cross was well soldered.

Brasileiro certo? Gostei da dica mas me diga ai, qual o jeito dentro da lei de se conseguir estas placas? estou montando o "CANTO DO MACHO" no porão da minha casa e essa seria a decoração perfeita junto com a mesa de sinuca geladeira antiga e as ferramentas!!! pensando tambêm numa cabeça de touro!!rsrs o que sugere?

Brazilian right? I liked the tip there but tell me, what is the legal way to get these signs? I'm biulding the "MACHO REFUGE" in the basement of my house and this would be the perfect decoration along with the pool table, old refrigerator and power tools! Maybe a bull trophy also

Sim lordvellos, conseguimos comprar um lote de placas num ferro velho de forma legal. a cabeça de touro eu não gosto muito mas ela também pode ser transformada em algo interessante: nunca vi um diy com cabeça de touro! pode ser uma boa, sugiro que invente algo bem legal com ela e compartilhe conosco! um abraço!

we bought the signs in a junkyard!
the bull head would be made from cardboard, there are some ibles on deer head trophy! looking for the bull one now.

a dartboard game laso would be nice! lol.. are you from sao paulo? could you recommend the junkyard you went ?
