“I don’t want to work. I want to bang on the drum all day…”

How cool is this deconstructed drum turned coffee table?

Hayley Stewart is an architectural designer with an passion for furniture design and recently teamed up with Six Gun Custom Drums to donate a custom coffee table to the Sea No Evil Art Benefit held this past weekend.

The Six Gun Table was created with the idea that scraps/byproducts of production are not waste but rather can be reconfigured into other useful design solutions with a little bit of thought. The design is assembled using three existing drum shells that are cut about their center axis’ and then routed along their rounded edge to interlock with three plywood shelves which slide through the slit, interlocking to be both functional and aesthetically satisfying. The shelves appear to float lightly between the balanced play of curves of the drum shells as though they were attached along a single axis’ instituting a rather strong structural system which allows for storage and support for the glass top. Six Gun lugs are then used to secure the table together enhancing the tectonics of the design.
