Man Cave Aviator Side Table Upcycles Airplane Parts

I made this Man Cave Aviator Side Table after I found this amazing aircraft part in my local lumber suppliers office. So I asked if it was for sale and it was! : ) I immediately saw it as a base for a cool side table.

It was quite dull when I found it, but I used RV aluminum polish to bring out a near mirror finish. I taped off the “no step” warning sign to protect it from the polisher. I had a local plastics supplier cut the top out of acrylic to save me the trouble of possibly cracking it while cutting the circles with my router. Next, I made a smaller ring from scrap wood to add support to the top. I leveled it up, drilled pilot holes for screws to keep the top in place. Finally, I added another wood circle to create a bottom base and it naturally creates a little cavity for storage. I’ll be able to store magazines and such in that little cubby hole.
