This mid century styled bench or coffee table bases are handmade out of bent 3/8 and 1/4 inch solid steel rod and are great DIY foundations ready for natural burl, live edge, reclaimed wood, concrete, stone, ply, lumber, or other suitable custom tops of your finding or creation to screw or bolt atop. Bases are strong enough to support loads of 500 pounds or more. Inspired by the "cat's cradle" design found on some Eames chairs.
