The first bench project that we tackled! It came out looking great. The only downside was that it weighs roughly 650 lbs! Trust me when I say, this sucker isn’t going anywhere!
I used 2″ angle iron for the frame for durability. I knew it would have to withstand a ton of weight. I added an extra piece of plating to the back to which I welded the tailgate against. I used Oak wood, routing out the corners and staining. Finishing it off by painting the FAMOUS 3% Logo and then securing the finish with a poly coat.
I cut the crankshafts in half and welded the springs on top and reinforcing by placing a 2″ square tube in the center of the spring. That was then welded to the base of the angle iron.
