Cabinets Made Out Of Recycled Jerry Can by Danish Fuel

Some designers are very creative with raw materials such as Jerry Cans. We already showcased Gascases, a company which upcycle old Jerry Cans into travel cases, today we present you the work of Danish Fuel, a company founded by René Sundahl that reuse old Jerry Cans and transform them into stylish cabinets.

Danish Fuel is making two kinds of cabinets, a Bar Cabinet and a Bathroom Cabinet with Jerry Cans mainly collected at military surplus stock houses.

Do you know from where is coming the Jerry Can? The original name of the Jerry Can was ‘Wehrmachtskanister’ and was invented by the Germans at the beginning of the second world war in 1939. It was then discovered by Great Britain and America and was copied to replace their much weakest version. Today, the Jerry can – named after the slang term for the German WW1 soldier – has gained popularity and it is now a cult object known by almost everyone.

All of Danish Fuel’s Jerry Cans are handcrafted in Denmark based on the principal of reusing parts of old Jerry Cans and remaking them. Hence, not two cans are alike; therefore your specific can will be a unique specimen. Though, there are different kinds of old Jerry Can models originating from different countries. At DDAY in 1944 more than 21 millions of Jerry Cans were spread all over Europe. During to our research about 1800 different models of Jerry Cans exist.

wow wow wow is about all I can say..
I have to say this is a first for me to see someone up-cycle a Jerry Can.
Wished I could figure out how they did the edging it looks perfect and like it was sewn onto the can but be hard to do sense the cans are metal.
