depending on what you plan on doing.

home depot or lowes is my suggestion... not trying to make a smart response either...

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.

That one's kinda neat. There are other companies that make bench braces for wood benches out of plastic and metal. Almost any would work.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
Here are a couple pics:
