Subaru flat-four coffee table has better 'Ring time than IKEA version – Click above to watch video after the jump

Using an engine as the base for a table isn't new. Gearheads have been turning four, six, eight and even 12 cylinder mills into furniture for a long time. However, someone has taken the engine-table idea a step further though by affixing a glass top onto the flywheel and allowing the table to rotate. The fact that you can watch the pistons turn as it rotates only serves to up the cool factor.

The power source of choice for this application? An EJ25 workhorse from a Subaru. Hopefully its not an early EJ25D though – the head gaskets could leak and ruin the carpet. Check it out in action after the jump.
