Great Father's Day Present

If your Dad's sick of socks, ties and aftershave and you happen to have just over a grand to spend, why not get him this Metropolitan Line table? It's made from a
"reclaimed" enamel sign.

Reclaimed Metropolitan Line Table

It's a snip at £1250 +VAT and he can rest assured in the knowledge that they are limited edition. Well limited until some other bright sparks have a similar idea for reclaiming parts of the Tube to make into furniture. Cheers to Rob for the heads up on that.

BTW IanD are you still selling those pencil cases and draught excluders that your Mum made from old Tube seat upholstery?

My draught excluder has turned into a handy door-stop at the moment as my house actually wasn't particularly draughty this year.

Alternatively if your dad's into gardening, you can make some flower pots out of reclaimed Metros. Any other ideas for Father's Day gifts with a Tube theme would be more than welcome.
