A Collection Of Unique Coffee Tables

Make A Coffee Table From An Old Factory Cart

What I like about this factory cart table is that the wood is all original. The factory cart was taken apart, refinished, and then put back together. I have seen a lot of tutorials for factory cart coffee tables that use all new wood. This one is very authentic and unique with all of the original vintage cart being used. I have seen a luggage cart similar to this one at a high end restorations and antique store.  I absolutely loved it but it was a bit pricey. If you can find a vintage factory cart and refinish it yourself, you can save a bundle!

And finally, here is a vintage sled that is used as a fun winter coffee table. All you need is to make some kind of base to get an old sled high enough for a coffee table. Instead of building a base, the base for this coffee table is just an end table flipped upside down.

In this case, the table top isn’t vintage but the legs are. A rustic wood slab makes a unique modern rustic table when it is combined with vintage legs. Also, grouping three small tables together is a fun option to just one large coffee table.

I used an old ice sled to make a desk but it is another type of sled that would work perfectly for a coffee table.
