Default Snowboard seat

Moved house the other day and was wanting to hang my old Rossi decoy up on the wall, the 'boss' stated that under no circumstances was that happening, but would like to see my board used as a bench seat for the dinner table. I took it to work and made up a frame. This is the outcome. uploadfromtaptalk1398328316486.jpguploadfromtaptalk1398328337936.jpg and here it is in action uploadfromtaptalk1398328371808.jpg

Are you drinking beer with ice cream? I'm a lover of both, but never, ever together.


I'm actually looking for two boards right now to make a bench for my balcony. How stable is your bench? Does it get wobbly when loaded up?

Nah, its beer, chicken leak and mushroom pie with mash potaotes. The squiggles on top is tomato sauce. The seat is not overly wobbly, though I am going to make some feet for the ends of the pipe feet, as there was a little bit of distortion in the welding process, just to make it sit better on hard based surfaces. The board still had a little flex in it too as it is mounted to the frame through binding insert holes. Myself and the boss sat on it and its certainly sturdy enough.

Could you add a upside-down pic?

Nicely done. Those metal studs things may not be good for your butt though.

Can't hang it on the wall..........but you can have it in the kitchen. I will never understand the thought process of most "bosses". Looks good regardless......like the metal instead of wood.

Here's a few pics of the process. The seat channel (reinforcing underneath) is 70x30x1140mm long, the overall height is 420mm, the pipe is 38x1mm and the bottom cross member is 300 wide. uploadfromtaptalk1398381713782.jpg cut pipes to length and did a test pipe notch on a bit of scrap pipe. uploadfromtaptalk1398381786420.jpg notched the pipes on a linisher and finished the shape with a grinder, in this photo I'm checking the fit of the two pipes together, its close enough. uploadfromtaptalk1398381880871.jpg one of the pipe feet with the end caps welded on, I should have drilled a little hole to help gas escape for when I welded the up right on it (live and learn).

uploadfromtaptalk1398382085727.jpg punching holes in the channel. uploadfromtaptalk1398382147316.jpg doing some test welds (more coffee and a new tungsten were required) uploadfromtaptalk1398382217499.jpg welding the frame up. uploadfromtaptalk1398382244608.jpg completed frame uploadfromtaptalk1398382304136.jpg drilling holes in the board for mounting, this was the scariest part of the whole process uploadfromtaptalk1398382367095.jpg bolting it all together. Some one said about having the studs on it. I've sat on them a few times and perhaps due to having a fat ass, haven't noticed them at all. I wanted to have to board in its 'as riden' state and may at a later date remove the stickers and sand and polish the top sheet, but for now I'm fairly happy with it.
