Since buying my first place I'm currently looking at what furniture I can buy. Since day one I've though about making a custom coffee table. In 2006 I went to the free Renault Performance show at Donington park where I was given a used F3 slick racing tyre. The tyre stayed in the garden and was used as a plant pot, until today.
I set to and starting cleaning up the tyre. Besides 5 years of mud and compost to remove I had to get out any slugs and then remove all the old water in the bottom of the tyre.
