    Default project coffee table

    i got a engine from tombs on here for this project, the plan is to build a table out of engine, a dog from some parts, a lamp from a camshaft, and a table out of the heads.

    here are the plan pics.

    heres the table out of the block.



    heres the end table with the heads.





    heres the lamp



    and the dog



    so with these plans in my head, heres where i began.
    its a mid 60's ford 289.



    so let the tear down begin,





    a little bit more torn down,





    and where i ended tonight about 4 out of 8 of the pistions are frozen right in to the block



    so that how far i am for now still have alot of work ahead of me. but it will be awesome once its done.

    I tried a camshaft lamp once and couldn't figure out how to get the wire through it.

    washed off with brake clean and greese and oil remover like 10 times before spraying it, i can find only two spots where the oild kinda started to come up after the paint but all in all it looks good.
