I had a bent willow chair that rotted so I decided to make one out of steel. My buddy Dave has a welding shop in his garage and he laughed when I told him what I wanted to do. He stopped laughing when they started selling. The first one was made out of scrap sucker rod, but when my friends saw it they wanted it. Eventually we built a 6 foot class bench for our high school and donated it to the school. I only have a few pictures, but there are lots of them and I could provide more. The green rocker was first, the red second and over the course of a year we built 20 in varying designs and colors.
Step one: Pick up 3/8 and 1/2 inch round rod and 1/4 x 2 1/2 inch flat bar stock
Step two: Cut rods to length
Step three: Weld
Step four: Paint
It is just that easy with a Miller Mig welder.
Cut off saw, angle grinders large and small, scrolling rod bender, 10 vice grip pliers, hoop bending jig, rocker bending jig, comb clamp for spacing rods evenly.
