HOW TO MAKE ORIGINAL FURNITURE FROM TIRES OWN HANDS

Before the process of creating furniture, of course, tires need to be pre-processed. To do this, they are washed, dried, treated with an alcohol solution or acetone solution. If you want to give a certain color to a car tire, it is better to use acrylic, alkyd or specialized paint (for rubber). There are many ways to create furniture from car tires. Here are a few instructions for putting the theory into practice:
Comfortable armchair. One tire will be the base, and the other two will be the legs. Tires serving as a support are cut in half and then attached to the seat with nuts or bolts. Plastic or wood of the appropriate size is installed on top of the seat.
Another way to create a chair. Several automobile tires with a pre-prepared slot are taken (the back of plywood or plastic is placed in it). The back is fixed with bolts or wire. The base can be stuffed with soft foam, pillows or make a hard seat.
The table can be made of several tires forming a rigid base, and a piece of plywood, which will serve as a work surface.
If you need a pouf, then take a few tires from the car, connect them together, and fill the space inside with pillows or foam rubber wrapped in fabric. Wheels can be additionally attached to the structure for possible movement.
But this is just the “skeleton” of your furniture. You have to work hard on the finish to give the product a final look. You can make soft upholstery, a woven rope cover or a removable fabric cover. It all depends on your imagination. The table surface can be decorated with a pattern or decorative sheet plastic can be attached. So the design will get a complete presentation.

Assessing the profitability of this venture is extremely difficult. It all depends on the quality and appearance of the finished product, as well as the ability to organize a sales market. The lack of competition and complete freedom in this area do not imply the presence of any average market price for the product.
Initial buyers may be your neighbors and acquaintances. In the future, you can offer your services to shops specializing in the sale of unusual and creative furniture for homes and household plots.
