Reclaimed Lumber and Steel Dining Bench

Just wanted to show off a simple bench made from 1″ steel tube and some very worn and beat up 2″x 8″ lumber.  The wood is simple fir construction grade lumber pulled from a garage somewhere after being used as shelving or something for who knows how long.  It was filthy but had character and a few live edges so after a bit of sanding and some tung oil it retains it’s rustic look but wont stain or snag your clothes when you sit on it.

The frame is simple and minimal 1″ square tube box legs welded to full length rails with a nicely place know in the planks allowing an interesting view of the steel.
