I wouldn't use an old tire...the smell..ugh. I'd use one of those large spools that wire comes on. balsa wood to make it solid around the outside, E6000 glue and cheap rope and stain.

Make an ottoman out of an old tire! This is an awesome DIY idea ,I would also do this as an outdoor planter. Great use for the thousands of tyres at Naike ( new family plot of land) so maybe a new craft is born....ok so i am becoming totally obsessed with burlap and jute!
