"Tailgate Desk" Makes A Great Conversation Piece
Did you ever fall in love with an older model pickup? Now you can bring a part of that look into your home or office thanks to a new wall-mount desk or bar that looks just like the back end of a 1950's pickup. It comes complete with tail lights which can be wired up to really work.
  Made from heavy duty, 16-gauge cold rolled sheet metal, the desk bar is designed to mount on a bracket that you bolt to the wall. With the tailgate shut, the unit extends just 17 in. out from the wall. The tailgate folds down to provide a working surface. The entire desk weighs less than 120 lbs. and can be mounted at desk or bar height.
  The pickup "bed" has stainless steel strips and red oak planks that have a natural high gloss finish. A pair of "cable management" holes in the bed allow use of a desk lamp or computer screen, or other accessory. Options include stake sides and an oak shelf that goes across the top of the desk. If you want, you can have your name embossed across the back of the tailgate.
  "It looks just like the real thing, right down to the hooks and chains that secure the tailgate," says Ken Laughlin. "It comes fully assembled - all you do is add the tail lights and any options. All the material we use is UV protected so you can use the desk indoors or outdoors."
  Comes in red or black, with custom colors available. Sells for $1,500 plus S&H. Stake sides sell for $150 and an optional oak shelf for $75. It costs $60 to add your name.
