Creating furniture from recycled metal that has a 30, 40 or 50 year old history is what Weld House does everyday. Oftentimes, our reclaimed sheet metal is documentable back to its origins at Ford, Dodge or Chevrolet via the VIN number assigned from the factory. We like that our coffee table tops have an automotive history but we do not build “car furniture”. The fact that our tables could be described as “green”, “sustainable”, “recycled” or automotive in nature is a distant second place; we first strive to build the finest quality coffee tables on the planet. Using talented fabricators on the best equipment available, you can be assured that your coffee table will be the topic of many conversations. We offer custom variations of our coffee tables which would include unique sizes, 100% found/recycled material & custom paint options to suit your corporate or residential setting.
Hunting for our raw material is both a blessing and a curse. Ten plus years ago, the circumstances surrounding us seeing that first Cadillac with heavily blistered paint through the lens of cutting the sheet metal skin off the car and using that material as a table top was a huge light bulb moment. It was a true defining-moment that changed the course of, what would eventually become, Weld House. We are car people but car culture was not on our minds at all when we first recognized this automotive material as an option for furniture. We have grown tremendously over the years and have developed fabrication techniques to allow us to build very large surfaces out of this material. From 20′ conference tables to large art installations, we have used this material in many different applications. Like everyone, our biggest limiting factor is time. Time is so valuable yet we are forced to take a time-out, get in a truck and head out on hood hunting road trips. We have covered many states hunting for metal and can recount many entertaining stories of both successes and failures along the way. Once we finally leave the pressures and deadlines within the shop and get out on the road with google earth on satellite, it is truly the definition of a dream job … that is a blessing. The failures along the way of coming home empty handed are the only curse but it gives us an appreciation of our craft and the final product. We are truly blessed and love what we do. Give us a honk or a thumbs up if you ever see us out on the road.
