Make an industrial-style bench using only two materials - galvanized pipes and a wood board.

Sand all sides of the board using 220-grit sandpaper, and round the corners for a finished look. Apply dark walnut stain with a paintbrush to enhance the grain and wipe excess stain with a clean rag. Allow time to dry. Apply polyurethane, and allow time to dry.

Connect two 10-inch pipes to the T-joint and three 10-inch pipes to another T-joint. Add an elbow joint at each end, and connect both pieces together with two 10-inch pipes. Add metal caps to the last two ends, and repeat for the second set of legs.

Attach legs to the bottom of the bench using pipe straps, a drill and 1-inch screws. Flip over, and enjoy.
