I got a phone call this week for my first out of the blue commission. He was looking for a base for a hefty ceramic sink.
I made feet using 2" x 1/2" flat bar stock.
Then I made a scale drawing using soap stone on a piece of sheet metal for a template.
The next steps in the process involved: 1. 90 degree bends in the bracket, which was quick and 2. For the cross bracing between the brackets I wrapped one piece of the stock around the other piece at the cross section of the bracing.
This took some figuring out, but I made a tool using 1"x3" tubing that fit tightly around the piece and slid over the stock for the bends.
We finished the base with two pieces of 5/8" square stock that will be riveted in place.
