Ok so I haven’t been on hear in awhile, partially do to my helper just getting old enough to help. And secondly I’ve been using my spare time to work on our kitchen, witch we have made from scratch also its just not done yet( we needed a break). Ok so the bench all we did was plane it down, nock the remaining bark off and got rid of any sharp spots. The slabs are 2.5” thick, I used, 3/4” oak dowls to hold the leg to the bench. Then I took 1” galvanized pipe for the other leg and 3/4” to span the length under the bench. Routed off the square edges and a lot of sanding with help. And then many coats of sealer. Also added 5/16 cork under the steal foot to prevent damage to the floor.

She is the cutest helper ever! What a doll!

Love the slab top and leg but maybe the galvanized pipe will grow on me :)

Great helper you have there, always nice to get them started young, cherish these days.
Great looking bench. Why not paint pipe all black/brown.

Thanks. As for the pipe when I drew this bench up I pictured it with galvanized pipe. I did however put a clear coat over it becuse the threads do over time have a tendency to rust some, as they are no longer coated.

I think the galvanized pipe is awesome. I’m fixing to build an outdoor table with galvanized legs.

Thanks Phillip just remember that the threads are not galvinized and will rust if not protect ed with somthing.
