What you need to make a recycled braai/table:

  • Three old car rims (two with tyres)
  • Welder and welding rods
  • Spirit level
  • Cadac braai plate (optional)

Step 1

Obtain three rims and clean accordingly. If you can, try to get two rims that still have the tyres on.

Step 2

Put one rim (with tyre) laying flat down on the floor or workspace and place another rim (without tyre) on its' side on top of the flat bottom laying rim.

Step 3

Using your welding machine and protective helmet, weld the two rims together.

Step 4

Once welded, put the third rim on top of the vertical rim, as per picture below.

Step 9

Alternatively, if you have a standard Cadac gas braai plate, put that within the rim and you have easily converted your table into a braai. Turn the braai plate around with the smooth side facing up and you have a table!


Step 10

Your table, braai or potjie cooker made from car wheel rims is now complete. When you have finished using it, simply push it over and wheel away!
