I decided to make a coffee table out of a wheel that I really liked. Here is a quick fly over the steps.
The wheel is a Ruffino 20 inch wheel.
Lower plate is a 19 inch steel circle and base steel tube is 3 inch in diameter. Everything is welded together and wheel is attached with bolts in case I want to change for another wheel for a different look.
