    Default finished barstool grille

    Well I finally put the finishing touches on the grille for my oldskool barstool. The whole thing was made from 16 gauge sheet. I just finished making the light mounts today. I used my brake to bend the mounts up on three sides, then welded a nut on the back of a boxing strip for the lights to bolt to. The mounts were then plug welded from the inside of the grille. I probably end up doing some pin striping on the top part once I dial in a design I'm happy with.

    Personally, if I'm going to buy a barstool or a lawn chair it better have a cup holder. No cup holder = No Sale.

    Your project demonstrates a very keen imagination on your part.
    Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!
    Best Regard,

    Nice job on the project.

    Since nobody else will ask, or everybody except me already knows, what the heck is that thing? A bar stool that you sit on? Or a bar stool racer? I don't see wheels or a seat, so please enlighten me. And, either way, what are the lights for?

    I hope I'm not the only one that can't figure this one out.

    Hey Jd! It's basically a barstool on a frame with an engine stuffed underneath it. They are usually pretty minimal, frame, engine, stool, wheels, brakes. I'm taking a little different approach and making it to look kinda like an old school truck. So you will see grille and handlebars up front, stool and engine in the middle, and the back with be the bed. I've done most of the raw fab, and now I'm working on the sheetmetal. Here's a pic of where I'm at.

    Okay, I get it.

    Looks great so far, and looks like it would be a kick to drive (ride?). Be sure to post pics when its done.
