Bench of the rings
This kind of bench requires little skill in working with a welder and a gas burner.First you need to make 2 rings, pre-conceived diameter.Crossbeam in the rings needed for fixing wooden slats, which will serve as a seat.The ring can be used as an ordinary metal pipe.
to make a circle of metal pipe, you should initially fill it with sand.This helps to avoid deformation or fracture.If you want to bend a steel or aluminum pipe, you'll need a gas burner with which you can heat the metal fixing the workpiece in a vise.Pre-heat it in a place that will bend.Before we begin to give the product form, check whether there is enough heated metal.When it comes to aluminum pipe, then bring to a place of heating the paper - she should smoke or ignite.If you warms steel pipe, then define the heating will change its color in place of heating to bright red.Crossbeam metal profile weld welder.
Now on to the wooden slats for the seat.If you do not have a lot of free time, the wooden slats or bars of the desired thickness and width can be purchased in a specialty store, but they can make their own.Very quickly, this problem is solved on the woodworking machines.If you do not have this, then you can do the job with the help of the jigsaw.Ready rail to be processed antiseptic, prevents rotting, and then open the varnish or paint them in your preferred color.
While rail will dry out, you can make a hole in the crossbeam, which you will need for their consolidation.Do not forget to take into account that between the strips must remain a certain period.
Now you need to fill in the ground under the bench.Here you can use the principle of filling shallow monolithic pier foundation.How to do it?Dig a hole the size of 50x50 cm, depth 30 cm, then pour the foundation layer of gravel 10 cm. Make a batch of concrete and pour their foundations, but pre consider how to strengthen the will of the ring.It is possible to weld to 2 feet on each ring and deepen their foundation.If you want to build a bench that can be removed for the winter, buy a long bolts.When pouring the concrete, they must be set in concrete, leaving the threaded portion on the surface.
completes the process will build the structure, and fixing it on the basis of the foundation.
