Solid Outdoor “Workbench” Great For Pounding
“I’ve used this outdoor workbench for many years. I made it from a 3-ft. long piece of 4-ft. dia. steel pipe,” says Douglas Edwards, Englehart, Ontario.
  “I first put a couple inches of concrete in the bottom of it and then filled it up to about 10 in. from the top with gravel. Then I filled it up with concrete so it’s level with the top. A piece of 1-in. thick steel plate with bolts welded to the underside was pushed into the wet concrete to hold it firm. I also inserted a few bars to use for bending and attached a vise to the side of the pipe.
  “This circular workbench is ideal for swinging a heavy hammer when you need to straighten something out. I enjoy working outside so I often use my torch and welder on this heavy table.”
