Across the country, especially for someone who does a lot of mechanical things, there can tend to be a lot of pieces that could potentially go to waste. These may be a byproduct of the jobs that you’ve been doing. If you don’t quite feel inclined to believe me, run out to your garage real quick. There are bound to be spare parts in a bin that has been sitting there for years. It might even be collecting a good bit of rust. It’s not necessarily anything that’s abnormal or to be ashamed of. However, it’s a situation that, if you really want to, you can turn into some useful objects. You might even be able to transform the parts into some sort of art instead of just taking up space.

In this one, we check out an example of a project that revolves around something very common. It’s a steel wheel that comes on most basic vehicles. When these wheels are replaced, sometimes, they’re left to just sit around and rot into the ground. However, this person decided that they would take it upon themselves to use this sort of wheel in order to make something that they could use on a regular basis, all with a couple of quick and resourceful modifications that brought their skills to life in a unique way.

If you follow along with the video below, you’ll see how exactly this contraption came about as it was once nothing more than a piece of trash that was probably doing nothing more than making a yard ugly or heading to the dump but has now been converted into something that could be used to chop up wood and make it useful for those who might just be looking for some extra utility around the fire pit.
