The one one the end of the bench (no photo available) is made using two large triangular alloy supports screwed through the marine ply base and reinforced with a large block of wood. This is attached to a stainless frame with back rest attached.
The ones photographed are made using an old stainless bottle rack. I weld them with stainless wire.
