Hi folks, just signed up thanks in advance for any suggestions. We have an old chair lift from a ski resort. I wanted to add legs to turn it into a bench (it would be way cooler to hang it somewhere, but we don't have a good spot). Thought I could use maker pipe fittings and 1" EMT to make the legs. Any suggestions on design? Maybe a U shape "leg" at each end? The pipe you see under the chair is 1" OD, so that seems to work perfect. Again, thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Where am I?

You could try using a heavy duty umbrella/shade stand and plug the pipe into the seat base. Not a conduit solution but it could work for you.

Wow, thanks very much.  I never thought of that at all!  I guess that's why it's good to ask other people for ideas.  My only concern would be if one person sat on one end of the chair, would it tip?  Maybe a really big base would keep it from tipping.  Thanks again!
