Got up at 6am this morning to start building. I must admit, I was surprised at how quickly and easily I was able to put the basic thing together. I mounted everything on a flat surface, clamped it down, and within an hour I had a free standing structure.
Check it out!
Angle grind down the welds, and voila.
I also welded some nuts onto some squares which fit the ends of the columns. This is going to be used as stoppers for the sand fill.
I made a little bottom sealed compartment to put the legs in.
Speaking of legs, here’s what they look like:
As you can see, the critical part is a ball that rests onto a rubber covered steel plate. They’re also super adjustable.
Picked up my acrylic sheet (AKA perspex) as well. Check it out…
They’re super heavy (about 1.5-2kg each), and sonically dead. (ed: matt botched up the calculations, they’re actually 8.5kg)
Tomorrow, I’m planning to mount the legs, mount the shelf rests and finish grinding everything back.
