Bar-height bistro tables and black stools create a fun conversation area near the concession stand. A bike rim used for the tabletop resembles a movie reel once it's painted black; a glass round (secured to the rim with bolts) provides a smooth surface. The base is created out of a plywood round and plumbing pipe; a 35 lb. weight on the wood base makes the entire piece stable. Soft workout grips are used to encase the pipe.
