Bench Crazy

So after bothering you all to vote on my bench in the Readymade contest. I go ahead and build another bench for my mud room. After all you do need a place to sit and take off your snowy boots… Barbara.

This one uses some old Jack stands that were sitting in my garage forever. Since I don’t change my own oil anymore I thought they’d make a good base for a bench. AND… since i’m hosting X-mas this year I can haul it out and use it for extra seating at the dinner table.

Plus They can hold up to 6000 pounds so I can eat all I like and still not worry about breaking the furniture.

I some bar stock welded onto the top of the stands to attach my wood.

You don’t see it in the picture but there’s a water main coming in the house right here. The stands are height adjustable so I don’t have to worry about clearance issues.
