Thanks for the feedback!
Most slats are 4 feet long by 2.75 inches wide by 3/4 thick,( unless you have a 5 foot bench, in which case they would be 5 feet long), Home Depot or your local lumber y…ard would have these...at some places they could cut them for you. All you might have to do fancy would be to round off the front edge of the slat that goes at the front of the seat.
Vertical blind slats are very easy to replace.
Pour in concrete in 3 boxes ("concrete molds", you can buy these or make them yourself.) Join the parts with some more concrete, finish and install the bench. The total can be… less than $20. If you prefer a wooden bench, the easiest way to do it is with trunks. If you want more specific answers, you'd better specify what kind of garden bench you want to build.
Not ideally. A 9 wood would replace a 5 iron, but could be used to replace a 6 iron if you so wanted.
Can you replace slatted closet doors with solid closet doors and paint the solid closet doors with same color as the walls in a room if you have natural wood baseboards and molding?
Of course you can. Unless the that closet is housing the AC Air handler. Then no because the air handler needs to be able to suck the air out of the house or apartment and it …does so by the openings on the slatted door. But otherwise, as long as the door fits in the opening there won't be any problem. It's strictly cosmetic.
Simple push ups essentially work the same muscle group as the bench press. If you need more weight for the exercise, you can elevate your feet while doing the push ups on a ch…air or ottoman, or if you feel really strong you can balance your body vertically on the wall upside down and press yourself up and off the floor vertically. Any other arm exercises in combination with push-ups will help build your upper body evenly. You can do dips using a chair and stool. Curls with a heavy household item. Just stay creative, stretch, eat healthy, incorporate cardio and warm up, and always use safety.
You have several park benches in your park and want to replace the slats with recycled material slats you have been unable to find any?
Several of the commercial grade recycled products can be milled and worked like wood and shaped into the dimensions required, HOWEVER, most wooden components in benches are al…so structural components and plastic composites may not have the strength or rigidity to directly replace the wood components. The material manufacturers have technical support people that may be able to help you decide.
cedar cause its strong and good
contact any local cabinet shop,deck builder,or local millwork shop, they will have access to material suppliers which handle appropriate wood species for out door uses.the…se services can be best found by calling your nearest wholesale lumber dealer and ask who they supply material to that may be willing to perform this task.you could also visit homes under construction,get the builder,deck builder,or cabinet shop being used on said construction and contact them directly with your request. normally these are smaller shops with leftover material from previous jobs and in many cases will welcome the opportunity to make use of material too good to throw away but know the odds of finding a good purpose for it is remote.even if the shop is to busy to take on your small task, ask if there might be an employee willing to take this as a side job.as always there will be those that are crotchety and unobliging and those that consider your request a reasonable approach to solve a problem. our shop has performed such services many times and as a benefit we have many appreciative friends.
Wood. My AnswerI used spruce for the last one I built You need to decide what it will be used for, where it is, and what adverse conditions it will be in to chose the …proper material.
No, and iron is not a renewable resource. It is recyclable, but not renewable.
There are many different patterns that can be used when making a wood bench depending on your preferences. From very simple to the more complex some of these include lattice w…ork, straight and simple, or the use of iron work.
Indoor wood benches can be purchased at locations such as Etsy or Overstock. If you would like a wood bench for outdoor use, try the Walmart outdoor area, Home Depot or Target….
You will need something sturdy that can withstand the weather in your area. Try pressure treated wood or yellow pine, or for something really nice, splurge and use cedar.
It lasts longer and will stand up to weather when outdoors.
