It's Coffee Table Friday Component Old PC Style

That's right - if you've got loads of old computers sitting around, a glass coffee table, and lights? Well you can build yourself a component PC coffee table. David Maloney created this brilliant coffee-table from the innards of his old machines that he kept around hoping to recycle some day - and recycle he did.

Maloney explains:

"For years I've been throwing old computer boards into a box in the garage to someday recycle them into some sort of project. It finally popped in my head to create a table with them using some of the black walnut from a tree we cut down a few years ago and had milled in the yard with a portable mill.

"It's basically two tables. One internal table to screw the boards to and another set of wood frames with glass that slide on top of the board table. It's basically a wood diorama. It will be very easy to swap out the computer boards with something else once we get tired of the look of the boards."

We'd like to see of course something along the lines of a recycled set of video screens of different sizes all playing random images. Who knows, but just seeing this makes some ideas of other recycled parts coffee tables.
