How To Make Shock Absorber Stools
 

This video demonstrates how to make a pair of stools from shock absorbers, coils springs, and some shop scrap…

⚠️ Warning, these coil springs were not under compression!!! If you are attempting this project and are not sure what you are doing make sure the springs are clamped as they may be under compression and could cause serious injury when opening them. Also, before welding it to the base drill a small hole in the shock to release the gas inside. Although it should be inert gas it is wise to do so to stop the gas pressure building up from the heat of the welding.⚠️
