From the Cool Hunting blog:

Using hoods from vintage American cars, Joel Hester handcrafts coffee tables in his Dallas, TX studio. Taking advantage of the bright colors of yesteryear and the patterns created by oxidization, the one-of-a-kind steel pieces add industrial chic to living rooms.

While I’m sure his work is worth the $850 price tag, if you have an old junker in the backyard you may as well make your own.
