Here is my first diy bench that I've made. After browsing modern benches, I begun to like the combination of metal and wood. There's just something about it that looks industrial and elegant at the same time. Most of the materials are from my last diy project (pool cover sliders) that didn't quite work.
7x Aluminium square tube 25*25*3mm 1.2m.
2x Oak wood 1.2m
Long threaded steel rods with bolt cap
25mm width brackets for joining the feet
Bolts for steel (ones with metal drilling tips)
Spray paint and varnish
Circular saw/mitre saw/hand tools for cutting metal and wood.
Step drill for drilling metal
Drill bit for wood
