How to make a tyre table

How to make a tyre table
Hello, guys. In this video, we will learn how to make a fancy table out of tyre, with Hands of Honour, a social enterprise company based in Cape Town. David is a very proactive member of Hands of Honour. He’s a man with full of ideas and with a willingness to innovate. In this example, he teaches us how to reuse an old tyre and transform it in a very practical table.
I’m Dave Milton. I’m going to explain to you how to make a coffee table out of a tyre and plywood.
I like to enjoy [INAUDIBLE] make it, because [? if ?] I am making something, you will enjoy making something.
I think it’s handy. It’s light. You can put it anywhere.
Warning: This video contains images of people upcycling without using safety protection. We (Living in Minca) understand that the necessary safety resources are not always available to every organisation and we advise our learners to bear in mind the wider context. Please remember to always put safety first and use a safety kit (dust mask, eye protection, and gloves) when upcycling.

In this video, we learn with David, a member of staff from Hands of Honour how to make a tyre table. Can you make it after watching the video?
