It may not be pretty, but it's comfortable and protected from the hellacious winds out here!
The van seats are from a 1997 Dodge Caravan that I had for a while out here, that sucker had 195k miles and still ran great. Sadly I got into a wreck and it was totaled, but luckily I had removed the seats that day.
You probably can't tell by the fine craftsmanship, but the table is made from a shipping pallet! I found the weathered pallet and timbers a few miles from my house, so the wife and I loaded them into the trunk. It does everything a nice garage table ought to, and didn't cost a dime!
I have had many a nice afternoon with some friends smoking cigars, sipping bourbon and roasting dead animals. It may not be pretty, but it's my favorite place in the entire house.
So that's mine, let's see your's!
Aaron, that's just my style man! Love the table. Always say that the man cave should be a place where you don't have to worry about spitting!

I like it Shawn. Funny, my smokin' space is very similar although not quite as "finished" as your space. The really wierd thing is I took the pic below at the beginning of the summer. Since then my better half thought that some of the NJ/NY puffers and I looked uncomfortable and bought me patio furniture that is almost the same as what you have there, right down to the footstool! She got it at Home Depot.

Thomas, that space is JUST FINE, and it's especially cool that you can enjoy a smoke with your dad!
OK, so these have been posted before, and as I indicated above, the wicker and folding chairs have been replaced with nicer seating. Oh, and Veeral made me buy a tabletop space heater. Perhaps if I get a chance I'll post the "now" pictures here! Here's my mancave:

Reason: pic not right
I'm reminded of a recording studio in Chicago I did some mixing at a few years back. The outtake was above the console to dissipate the heat coming off the control surface and sucked out the smoke from the three cigars two of the band members and I were smoking simply because we could. Normally, smoking in recording studios is strictly verboten, but the owner of this particular studio designed it so that his clients could indulge and be comfortable without ruining the very expensive, sensitive gear and fouling up the room.
I've seen some vintage consoles from the sixties with ashtrays built into them!
