I started this project because I wanted an affordable bench/entryway table for my front door and didn't like anything I found in stores in my price range.  It's so easy to make and the materials are pretty affordable, too!

Heavily inspired by the tutorials at http://homemade-modern.com/

Step 1: Materials

Tools:
Power drill (or just a hand screwdriver if the wood's soft and/or you're a boss)
Staining pad (if you decide to stain the wood)
Level

Lumber:
1 - 2" x 12" x whatever length you need.  Most hardware stores will custom cut the lumber for you.  I bought a whitewood softwood board and had it cut to 45"

Hardware:
8 - 1/2" Black iron floor flange**
4 - 1/2" Black iron tee fitting
8 - 1/2" Black iron 12" nipple
2 - 1/2" Black iron 5 1/2" nipple

16 - black wood screws

Optional:
Wood stain of your choosing (I used Minwax in mahogany)
Polyurethane or lacquer of your choosing
Felt pads to protect wood floors


**According to Home Depot's website, they stock black iron floor flanges.  I bought all my materials at Lowe's and was told floor flanges only exist in galvanized iron so I spray painted the silver to black.

nice!

Looks good. Really like the pic of it in front of the railing, they match a bit :)
