While staying safe at home, Metallica’s own James Hetfield has used some of his time to design and built a set of handmade side tables, with all the welding and woodwork happening in his own garage.

A post on the band’s non-profit All Within My Hands Foundation Instagram page reads:

“During shelter in place, @metallica’s own James Hetfield has used some of his time at home to hone a new creative outlet. He has designed and built a set of handmade end tables, with all the welding and woodwork happening in his own garage. We are raffling them off, and one lucky winner will receive the set, signed and personalized by James! Every $10 donation = 1 entry, and all proceeds benefit #AWMH and our work supporting the welding programs funded by the #MetallicaScholars initiative”

Sadly only US residents can enter the competition, but for a number of Metallica fans, this will certainly bring to mind the “I am the table” lyric off “The View,” a track on the band’s Lulu album which was made in collaboration with Lou Reed. The line became an instant meme, one that lives on even today, nine years after its release just check out the Youtube video above and here.

The tables aren’t the only project Hetfield worked on while in quarantine as Metallica put together a new version of their classic song “Blackened” in early May. Each member performing their part at their respective homes.
