KansasNoob Haha maybe if they could be shown the art of welding they'd appreciate it!
I've got a couple little MIG projects planned for this summer. After seeing this thread I want to make one of these, I need old trashed boards though.

I was a diesel apprentice for 3 years. I had one job for 6 months that involved hard-facing excavator buckets. I basically sat for 8 hours a day and drew designs on the buckets out of boredom with the hardening rods. You get really good at laying down smooth lines. After that I felt like I could weld anything. Then I decided to go back to college because I didn't want to be a 40 yr old with a bad back and meth addiction.

I don't think my neighbors would be down with me cutting metal and welding on my balcony. The Swiss are finicky like that

Mizu Kuma The bench that I posted can be built without welding too!!!!!

And it'll make it easier to pack and ship mine to me when ya make it!!!!!

KansasNoob You'll get made fun of for having to grind a weld, don't bother grinding it. I've been welding for 6 years and it's a lot of fun. Mainly MIG trying to start TIG.

This bench is awesome, if a person had a bunch of old boards you could maybe even make a little $ selling a few.

f00bar The most important tool of any new welder is the grinder so you can clean up your welds before people make fun of you.

My next significant project is made out of wood and requires to be highly presentable and to a fairly fine tolerance. I'm dreading it as I haven't worked with wood for about 20 years and was never that great at it to start with.

Welding is an awesome skill to pick up, and though a lot of people can be critical, they can't often deliver themselves.

neni Got enought boards in the shed for seat n back, but I think I start with a simple one.

The way older brother is a builder, has a big machine/equipment park and he loves to teach. Spent a lot of time on building lots as kid, handling cement mixer - and running around with cement glued allover - brother all excited, the mother not so much . I'm still getting all excited when I get a call that there's a new project at his house and I can operate the excavator .

fattrav Neni, it was all fairly simple, if you've got two boards (seat and back), you'd want a slitghly different design similar to Mizus one (beggs in Taupo has the meanest ski seat, I kinda want to pilfer it every time I walk passed their shop). The concept of getting a cheap old bench seat off of Craigslist and modifying it is not I silly idea.

Tatanka Head Neni, you weld? Or what approach to making this will you take? My only options are wood or a skeleton of an old bench that I would probably have to steal from some unsuspecting old person or in a brocki.

neni Thanks a lot for the detail pics. Gonna try to rebuild this with some of our old boards.
