Anyone know where to get the hardware to build a wakeboard bench?

wakerider111 06-17-2008 11:19 PM

depending on what you plan on doing. <BR> <BR>i have been thinking about making one so i don't have to drill holes in my boards. <BR> <BR>home depot or lowes is my suggestion... not trying to make a smart response either...

premiergirl 06-17-2008 11:31 PM

Yeah I figured the way I worded that I could end up with a few smart responses. I didn't know if anyone had any experience doing their own and if they could let me know what they used etc. Steel or wood.

Give the CIE crew a call, I forgot which guy was building them awhile back but he might have some material for you.....#????? try CIE.com??? or look for one of them on the posts and "hyjack".

CIE AL is the guy who can make the supports for ya. he makes them out of alluminum i believe <BR> <BR> <BR>it would be cool to see someone make a wakebench recliner

I Think it was Umali that built a swing bench out of two brand new Ronix ones, it was pretty sick, but at the time it was painful to see that happen, I had just barely saved up the money two buy one of em, and that guy makes a bench out of them! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

David Williams had the swing didn't he? I think they were blem or demo boards. It is the nicest piece of wakeboard furniture I have seen.

westsidarider 06-24-2008 7:52 PM

david williams has it but someone else built it. dont remember who

ghostrider_2 06-24-2008 8:06 PM

Those were warranty boards and had no value on the water. The tops looked good, but the bottoms were damaged. I can't afford to make a swing out of two new Ronix boards. It was built by my buddy Brett Davis. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/594741.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/594742.jpg" alt="Upload">

The 2x4 flip top legs are available from closeout.com. Got mine for about $50 shipped. Just about ready to make another one.

btr1 06-25-2008 1:21 PM

I built one a few weeks ago with a 2x4 Basics kit I ordered from Amazon. It is $46 shipped. You can use it as a bench or as half of a picnic table because the back rotates up to form a table. <BR>Here are a couple pics: <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/594834.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/594835.jpg" alt="Upload">
