I build this dresser already a couple of years ago.

It started with thy tyre I got at a DTM race event, but I didn’t know what to do with it. It did nothing but occupying much space. So after a few month I decided to build a dresser out of it.
I took beech, builded a small base and a “wheel rim” with a drawer and a small shelf with a clap.

Very unique and interesting project and combination of materials. Rarely we see wood-rubber combination here. I must admit it fits perfectly.

That is a unique piece!
Probably nothing like on this site before.

What is a DTM race event and is the tire a real tire?

DTM is Detusch Touring Motorsports i believe. Its a racing event that is ran by stock like vehicles in germany. There is a similar racing series in England called BTCC.

That is a real tire for sure! Tires are never pretty but always cool.

Unique, clever, Bravo! I could easily imagine this as a gift to one of my motor-head friends.

Thanks for all your positive replies!
@CFrye I will take new pictures this week and post them here!
@oldnovice jshroyer explained it quite well. And yes, it is a real tyre that was used in a test race, or the qualifying.
