Yes this is made from tires: and here’s how its done…
Truck Tire- free
4 legs ( blocks of 3x3x2)- free – got this the 4 square blocks found in palletes
5 beams- 3×2″ is fine. I got some 2×6″ beams free from a relatives house when they were renovating. These lovely beams were rescued from becoming firewood our who knows what insignificant use.
Synthetic Leather – this is optional. I had some scrap sheets left over from another project. So thought to use it.
1 sheet 9mm plywood-$20
2 sheet of 2″ sponge- $20
1 sheet of 1/2″ sponge-$3
Drop Cloth- Approximately $10
8 screws and 20 1/4″ nuts and bolt.- @5
