    Bench

    Here is what a horse drawn buggy, a Kenworth and a bicycle looks like crammed together.


    Here is the video of the build. It's long and boring..

    Great repurposing of what would otherwise be junk John! I have sone family members that are trying to get me into the the business of making furnature from " junk metal". is there any spring or movement to the bench from the buggy springs?

    Really like your build Jonathan! Saved a lot of stuff and will have good use for years to come. The bicycle fenders with the lights are the bomb. ~PJ

    Crazy thing is, I didn't think a lot of the bench. Just something I had in my head I wanted to do. A fellow walked in the shop (he's a truck driver) and said "I gotta have that bench for my shop" I told him it wasn't done and I wanted to paint it and he said "no, I want it like it is for my shop" He made an offer I couldn't refuse. He traded me a Yamaha G-6 electric golf cart for it with charger, top and lights. Nice golf cart, but it is pink. I will post a photo later. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and he became the beholder of the bench. I still seen a pile of junk parts welded together.. Jonathan

    What?! A golf cart for a bench? That's a great deal, considering that you probably have some scrap left to construct another bench.

    I thought the same thing. I have plenty of bench makin materials!! The cart needs painted and they sprayed the seat black and it's coming off, but we made the deal and the next day he delivered the cart and hauled the bench. I have a pink movable bench now.
