I love the metaphoric connection between the fuel for cars and the fuel for humans. The Danish Fuel Tank Bar Cabinet uses Jerry Cans from World War II and turns them into outwardly quirky, but inwardly lavish mini-bars.
The old jerry cans are first sand-blasted to remove the old coat of paint and whatever rust it may have collected from the past 70 years. The door is then laser-cut out of the can with a sheer precision that allows it to open and shut perfectly. The cans are then powder-coated and baked with a new layer of rust-resistive paint. The woodwork on the inside uses thin layers of Plywood veneers for shelving, and the minibar is finished with a 1939 style mirror and hinges to complete the look. The Danish Fuel Tank can be mounted on any wall but I highly recommend it as an addition to any man-cave.!
