Mike Makes a Contemporary (kind of) Triangle Bench

Our church’s high school group needed some benches for their meeting area. I decided to copy Louis Lim’s ’round and round’ contemporary bench design, somewhat successfully.

I had trouble figuring out how to measure the “skin” that goes around the base of the triangle. I think I was trying to make a “truncated cylinder” but I couldn’t quite get the dimensions right. Ultimately trial and error prevailed.

UPDATE: One of our viewers Joseph Malovich figured out the math for us in Solidworks.  Here is his design.  Thanks Joseph!
