    This bench is 7' x 18" and 26" tall approximately. The scrolls were done by hand from 1/2" x 3/16" flat bar. The frame is 1" tubing. I had it powder coated for durability. This was really fun to make!

      Well done, Mary! Lots of good experience on keeping things plumb and squared-up, I bet.

        It's incredibal what the eye finds important, when not missled by the intellect.
        I opened your pic, saw the marks of good exicution, and closed the pic.

        I would have hung a blue ribbon on the scroll work.
        I then read your post more carefully.
        ======"The scrolls were done by hand".=======

        What ? I thought, and re-opened the pic.
        I can now see the uniqueness of many of the curves in the scrolls.
        And .... I'd still hang a blue ribbon on them!

        Phooey with the intellect.

            vicegrip, you have a better eye than I do. Went back and looked, the scrollwork was definitely handmade. Not a criticism, this actually adds "character" to the job.

            To the original poster: post up more, you have nothing to be ashamed of.
            *** Disclaimer ***

            As I have no wish to toy with anybody's life, I suggest you take this and all other posts with a certain amount of skepticism. Carefully evaluate, and if necessary, research on your own any suggestions or advice you might pick up here, especially those from my posts, as I obviously haven't the skill and experience exhibited by some of the more illustrious and more successful members of this forum. I'm not responsible for anything I say, as I drank toxic water when young.

                Thanks! Being new to forums, if I wanted to post a pic or two of a trellis, should I start a new thread or just add them here?:

                  Mary, I use Photobucket or Tiny Pics. Both are free programs that you load your pictures into (I set my camera to 640x480, so I don't have to re-size any pics. Same resolution setting if I edit the pix).
                  Then you simply select one of your edited (cropped, etc.) pix, and drop the data string into the "forums" choice, right click and "copy" the highlighted data string.. Then, when you entering your text in the forum, you just right click and "paste" a where you want the picture to appear...(it won't at the time, but will when the reply is posted. (Look at the number of entries I have (upper right), and you will see I've done a few of these!)

                    Foot, just being an old country boy I may have things backwards, but I'm guessing it's been a tad too long since you lasted posted some pics to drool over.

                      I wish I had saved the pic Foot did, when he turned that P&H welder into a Picaso!

                      I was blown away, but I can't find anywhere that I saved it!
