    A few years ago, I made a "teddy bear seat" for gf's little girl from her first (toddler) bed.

    Gf has asked me to "weatherproof" it so it can stay in the garden. Unfortunately, the wood isn't up to it, so I built this:

    Very good, and it certainly going to stay exactly where you put it.

    It isn't going to blow away, that's for certain.
    Probably 15kgs(35lbs)+

    3mm (1/8") box section + 16mm (5/8)" solid steel bar is probably overkill, but I wanted to keep the proportions, and I'm using up the steel I already have.

    That’s a heavy duty garden bench.
    Certainly ain’t getting one of them from home base as it was built clearly to last more than one summer.

    Very nice.
    The main frame is made with 30 x 30 square tubing?
    Will you weld up a mini coffee table to complete the garden set?

    40x40x3mm - it's *heavy*

    Coffee table is on the project list.

    Cos my 2, 6 and 9 y-o grand daughters *love* coffee - and "monster" high sugar pop.
    I always make sure they have both before I return them to no.1 son

    Cos pay-backs a female dog.

    Mwah-hah-hah-hah.
