Both of these pieces were amazing on their own but combined make an absolutely fabulous table.
I found the most wonderful welding guy who loves this stuff as much as me, so no project I bring him ever gets that skeptical eye. He took both pieces and cleaned and leveled them so he could get a nice tight weld. I told him to make it look as “rusty and authentic” as possible and he took my request seriously. He does a beautiful job!
I placed a nice heavy piece of glass on top...
And Viola! Instant end table. I just love that rusty patina and the beautiful blue on the stand.
Heres another post where I used the cog as part of another outdoor table

Here's a marriage made in rust heaven! I found this wonderful rusty sprocket wheel a couple months back as I was leaving the salvage yard (so glad I was there when I was) and had been eyeing the heavy blue stand at Geo's store for months and decided to put the two together and make a fantastic end table.  And for those of you who remember my "haul" post back in November, this is the piece I used to make the instant outdoor table...

The rustier, the better - and your welding guy did a great job with it too!!

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Love it!
