    Nice! The sort of thing I have plans to make sometime in the future.

    Is it reclaimed wood, and the metalwork - has it been lacquered or anything? I went nuts grinding every inch and then using a clear lacquer on a stool I made but might try something else sometime.

    Tidy. Would have left the small table with just one cross bar to match the others though.

    Are you painting the metalwork?

    Looks smart. Only critique is the grinding, hutni saw in another post you were going to try and colour match!

    Reclaimed wood for character and raw steel for the industrial look.

    Good point about the bar but it will match the table with a box frame I'm making. The steel is being left in its natural state, polished welds exposed and the reclaimed wood for character and an industrial look.

    The visible grinding was intentional. I just wanted to know how to return the colour back to the original in case someone prefers that look.
     
  9. These look quite nice. One thing to be careful of though, in your other post where you have ground back the weld looks like you have gone too far possibly. You can see a line where the two bits of steel meet, so it may be a weak point. May be worth bevelling the edges of the steel if you didn't already & turning the heat up.

    Cheers Dan. It's box steel with rounded edges so the hairline is the taper of the weld so there's much penetration in the valley. Hope the picture shows what I mean. I'm going to reduce the feed speed to get a neater inside corner weld. IMAG0882.jpg IMAG0882.jpg IMAG0882.jpg

    The welds are fine as is you also have the fillets on the inside ! I shouldn't weld the open face edge either its over wrlding for no gain.

    Being honest the scaffolding planks are not weathered enough and too lacking in character for my own tastes personally. If thats all i had i might scorch them then oil perhaps ? But thats just me and what i like

    These would look really great with a milled log plank imo

    Cheers for your ideas and noted. I'll source more weathered timber soon. The scorching is a clever idea - I'll give it a try. Milled log plank would be stunning - another future project.
