  • 2 old car rims
  • Small square steel bar
  • Hollow square steel bar
  • Angle bar
  • Grinder
  • Rust removal disc and metal cutting disc
  • Bolts
  • Marking pen
  • Welding machine
  • Black spray paint


Step 1

Using a grinder with a rust removal disc attachment, smoothen up the car rim until all of the rust and uneven surface, then repeat with the other car rim, and attach them together using a welding machine along their center edges. Grind and smoothen the edges of the joined center, then mark the midpoint horizontally and use a straight piece of wood to connect the midpoints together and make a straight line, and cut along the lines.

Step 2

Cut a few small pieces of small square steel bars, then attach them to the sides of the cut center as shown in the video, and attach the bolts. Make a cut for the opening of the rim and cut the top open completely, then smoothen out the edges, cut a piece of angle bar, and install it on the sides for the handle. Flip the rim over, then install the hollow square steel bar for the legs, and then flip it over right side up. Spray paint the grill black, then allow it to dry, and use it!
