How to make your own metal bench

The metal bench is the centerpiece of many modern homes, but it’s hard to get ahold of, and there’s often no instruction manual.

A friend of mine, a self-described DIYer, set out to make one, and he did.

Here are his tips and tricks for making a bench from scratch.


Find a good bench template: Finding the right bench template is crucial.

I recommend a bench that is 2 feet tall, with no corners and no edges.

If you have an adjustable bench, be sure to measure the height of your feet and use that as your template.

If the template says you need to measure 4 feet, you need a 6-foot template.

This means the template needs to be 3 feet tall.

You’ll find plenty of great bench templates on Amazon.


Choose a material: There are several different materials available for metal bench templates.

A lot of metal benches are made from recycled steel, which can be expensive.

The more you use, the more expensive it gets.

So if you are spending a lot of money, it makes sense to go with a material that will last a lifetime.

I use aluminum, but any metal will work, and it’s a great material to have around for years.


Find your bench: A bench should have a smooth, sturdy surface, with the sides facing down.

The sides should be straight, with plenty of clearance for your legs.

You want to use a bench template that will allow you to get in and out of the bench without bending your knees.


Find the right height: It’s a good idea to keep your bench as close to 4 feet as possible, because you’ll need to use your legs to bend over and push it back and forth to get the most out of it.

The longer you bend the legs, the longer it will take for your joints to adjust to the new angle.


Put your feet in the middle of the floor, like a metal bench: You want your feet to be in the center of the surface of the table, so you’ll have to make sure that you can get them in and then out of your chair.

This is important to avoid any discomfort.


Lay your feet flat: Make sure you don’t lay your feet on the floor or your legs will come out of their holes too early.

The angle of your legs should be aligned with your center of gravity.

This will give your knees a little room to bend, which will help you feel comfortable in your chair while you’re sitting.


Position your bench on the bench: If your bench is on a metal surface, make sure the top edge of the metal bench will be facing down so you can lay your legs on it.

This also helps prevent your knees from hurting while you sit.


Place your chair on the edge of your bench and support your body: If you’re standing in front of a metal table, position your chair so that you’re at least 6 feet away from the edge, with your legs pointing straight up.

If your legs are straight, you can place your legs at an angle that will let you get your hips and knees aligned.


Measure your height: Measure your feet with a ruler.

I like to measure with a pencil.

The height is how far your legs and torso will be from your centerline.

If it’s too high, you may have to bend your knees to get it down to the right angle.


Mark off the height at which you’re going to sit: Make a mark at the bottom of the line at which your legs begin to bend.

You can use a ruler to do this, but you’ll probably have to measure from the top of the mark to the bottom to get your correct height.


Adjust your chair: If it is a bench with a rounded edge, it’s easiest to put the back of your seat down on the edges, with a little bit of support.

This helps stabilize the chair and makes it easier to stand and get a seat.

You don’t want to put a solid backrest on your chair, because it can pinch your back and hurt your knees, and you can easily get a brace on your back, too.


Adjust the seat: It helps to adjust the seat so that your knees and hips aren’t at an excessive angle.

This should be the right amount so your knees can bend and your hips will be able to bend as well.


Clean up after yourself: There’s no need to put your hands on the sides of the chair to make a clean break for your feet.

Just keep your hands where they are, and if your legs bend too much, you’ll find yourself sitting in a chair that doesn’t fit properly.


Be careful when handling the metal: If the metal is a bit rough, it can be difficult to hold your feet when bending your legs, so it’s important to have a good hand position and your body should be able be supported without your
