    Lee - I hear you, and I'm more than happy to offer you £90 for your bench. :D
    Only reason I got involved was because i hoped to offer you that i would build you what's in the pic, for material cost only.

    However your 3 hours away so I think the logistics have killed it, I know a half pallet will be about £60...

    3x2 will be fine it's the cross bracing that will count, mine has ply sides sides and triangles on the back top corners half the leg length in both directions, it's solid as a rock I can assure you...no need for a slege hammer to crack an egg.

    Two years old, 12 months weathered (was an outside work horse while I built my workshop) and 24 months later is still as strong as the day I built it.

    Are you sure you can't be tempted to built your own, if you get the wood yard to cut to size all you got a do is screw/bolt it together?

    Misunderstanding. Wasn't aware you were offering to build it (and thanks on that anyway).

    I know that most guys here can knock simple stuff like this up PDQ. Now I feel inadequate! ;-)
