Have we found some uniquely amazing man-cave furniture pieces for you to check out! We all intend to have a better man-cave than our neighbors, and a lot of this comes back to how you make your own room for escaping. Whether you just have a beer fridge, or go all out and have a bar installed, maybe even with tapped beer!

Be the one to take the initiative and buy it first.
We’ve crafted a list of unique man cave furniture to set your eyes upon, but first, a buying guide to get you thinking if these products are right for you.
Man Cave Furniture Buying Guide
So, is there anything you need to consider before purchasing your man cave furniture? Well, what about size for a start. Do you have the space available and if so, is it limited? This can depend on whether your man-cave is just going to be a bar, games room or sports area. Certainly, a pool room, where you’ll want to feature a pool table or air hockey table, is going to require a large amount to space.
On the other hand, you may just be looking at a smaller area for drinking purposes and watching TV. This is where measurements are so important so take note of item specifications when buying units, cabinets freestanding bars etc.
Is your allocated space in an L-shaped room? If so this will also limit the size of furniture. On thing to keep in mind here is that when purchasing items such as a beer fridge, the door maybe on one side and not changeable to the other. This means you will need to consider where the unit will go so that the door will not be impeded when opened.
You may have a larger L-shaped room in which you intend to add a pool table. This is usually very awkward so make sure you have enough room to line up a shot with a pool cue in hand. Will the cue hit any walls when pulling back to play a shot? The shape of your room can be deceiving so make sure you measure correctly.
You may already have a man cave that you’re expanding or adding to. If this is the case, you will have surroundings that you should match into. To put this simply, if you have a blue room you’ll want to add more blue stuff. In other words try to buy man cave furniture that matches the existing features you already have. If you have a retro look, keep the retro feel going throughout your room. If your man cave is timber lined, you may want to add items that enhance the timber ambiance. This can still be achieved with unique man cave furniture but you’ll need to make sure it ties in.
Deviating away from a theme can make your man cave haphazard and feel half finished. You want the best man cave in the street, not the most erratic.
Finally, your budget is going to play a major factor in the man cave furniture you acquire. I don’t advocate over spending but it goes without saying that you generally get what you pay for. Stick within your financial limits but try to look for unique furniture to make your man cave features get noticed. This can be a balancing act but with a bit of due diligence and research, it can be achieved.

#3 - Mopar Timing Gear Clock
? Welded chain links & gears
? MOPAR emblem
? Urethane protective finish
? Possible waiting period
Although they are aimed at ‘rev-heads’, these clocks would suit many a man cave due to the uniqueness of the clock and the oddity of such man caves. You couldn’t really put one in your kitchen, now could you?
The full size of this gear set is approximately 7”W x 10”H x 1”D. Made from steel, you’ll find each link in the chain has been welded, and the chain is welded to the gears. This creates stability, and therefore the timing gear set clock will never lose its shape. You’ll love the deep glossy protective finish that comes from the applied urethane. Several coats of urethane have been applied after the steel is polished using a grinder.
Completing the finished product sits the ‘MOPAR’ emblem in the center of the timing gear. And the clock numbers, they’re CNC machined (pre-programmed manufacturing process where computer software dictates the movement of machinery) from billet aluminum. What a nice piece of work.
