Just finished a side project that took about a month to complete. This was a first time for me for taking apart an engine, luckily I didnít have to put it back together.

It was a Dodge Viper SRT10 engine that my friend blew a rod and shot it through the cylinder wall. I helped him swap it out and I told him it'd be cool to turn his blown one in to a table. Next thing I know he offers the block with everything in it to me for free as long as I can get it out of his garage.

I sold quite a few of the internals on eBay and spent some time cleaning the block.
Found a decent piece of glass at a thrift store and for $72 I've got a pretty sweet coffee table.


i sold the small block one i built for $500 btw... get some battery powered color changing leds and throw in it, they look cool af

Thanks! How did you do your lighting? LED strips? Battery powered? Or did you run a wire to an outlet?

Kell wants to know if you'll make one for our den, or sell that one to us.

I might have to start taking orders. Id be willing to make more.

I've got a SBC block and crank with splayed caps I've been looking at getting rid of if anyone is interested in doing a table out of it.

You're not referring to the jeep, correct?
