    Amazing. Definitely kind of a scary feeling, but these look great. There’s a kind of steampunk look to them too, but they can stand on their own.

    -Are these beds made out of bombs?
    -Yes, but they are very old and highly unlikely to blow up. But try not to toss and turn.

    Awesome…love them all. Does the rust make the room dirty?

  4. Douglas

    Where do you find a stockpile of used mines? What other weapons might we see turn up as household items? Hey dude, one of these sent my uncle to the ocean floor during the war, so I got one as a memento. Whatever.

    :-0 these are AWESOME!! Where exactly does one acquire these old mines?? lol when i read the title i thought they meant old mining equipment (underground). that would make for some cool furniture as well imo. either way, i can forsee that i will be making some stuff like this in the near future. i just wish i had saw this early enough that i could of made the baby carriage for my kids while they were still babies. i would so push around my kids in a old bomb.

    Very creative and they have a real Steampunk feel. I think these would be cool in the right kind of bar. It would’ve been interesting to see how some would look polished and chromed or painted really crazy. I think that would’ve made some of these more appealing or certainly more versatile. Very well done for what they used to be used for.

  12. MasterOche

    I guess this furniture is a BOMB!!!’ LOL!!’

  13. Libeerian

    Weird, wild stuff. I’m suspecting that this guy’s business will explode after the public sees the stuff…
