New dining room table I made today; for the whole story behind it see my blog at http://industrialrevelations.blogspot.com .

A huge, heavy train spring, with a concrete saw for a top.  Base is an old plow disk with bolts for feet :)

It looks wonderful in your dining room!

Thanks for sharing.

monakent--Yep; it's been awhile since I posted: have been taking care of familiy stuff since spring; just now getting back into work/biz.

oldnews---this type of saw blade really never is sharp; the very outer edge has a line of diamond dust coating that cuts through the concrete. All I had to do was clean it up with a wire brush :)

RustyDiva---I got the spring at Pacific Recycling; they have them quite often in different sizes. All train cars have them; they are like the shocks/struts on your car :)

Will post more projects soon...

oldnews writes: Really neat! I love that huge spring, what a find that was! How did you get the saw blade dull enough so that it doesn't pose a problem as a table top? This is pretty amazing looking! Marie Posted: 6:41 pm on October 25th
