Vintage Military Artillery Box Repurposed as Man Cave Coffee Table

My dad figured if the U.S. Army could use these boxes to haul two artillery shells weighing more than 50 pounds apiece, then the box could certainly stand up to the wear and tear as a Man Cave Coffee Table. After all, what guy can break an artillery box?
See how my dad designed and built this project on our blog:

    Love this. My son just came home with a large coffee table/ottoman that he wants to convert for use on the lounging screen porch. I can hardly wait to see what he comes up with!

  • That sounds really cool! I wish we had a lounging screen porch. That sounds really nice too! :)
