Re: sleeper bench seat. Takes three 2400x200x50 pine sleepers.

This bench seat took about 3 hours to build from scratch after putting the sleepers through the thicknesser. Could make the ends simpler, but I like the wedges for looks. All from Bunnings, finished with Bondall clear gloss coat..

Great to see they aren't just for making garden beds like myself.

Love everything about these, will have to give them a go. Mixing metel and wood, awesome. I will try to use railway pins as the wedges.

thanks so much for sharing.

I have taken this idea for a bench seat myself using dressed sleepers. The one I plan to make will likely be a different sizing but knowing the timbers used helps me a lot. Just ordered my dressed pine timbers today.
