Carpet + Glass + Steel Scrap = Coffee Table

Brandon Biederman has created this spectacular table. He took steel angle irons from a scrap yard near his father's house in mid west Wisconsin. He cut the glass from a larger, broken piece that had been previously used as a dinner table and the carpet came from some old carpet samples.

Door Desk

Vanessa Roanhorse, a huge RX fan, has created this awesome table. She's still ordering some glass to be cut for the top and plans on possibly adding some shelves for the inside, but she said thus far it has been "easy as pie" to make!
