Do it yourself examples how you can make strong furniture without any experience. There is very little that can go wrong during the furniture assembly. And the hardware store will probably cut everything to size if you previously make a cutting list for all the scaffold tubes.
What type of tube clamps are the best to make furniture frames with scaffold tubes?
We mainly use special clamps to make the furniture with scaffolding tubes.
Many scaffolds have universal clamp types with bolts that stick out. You see those connections on the picture of a swivel clamp at the right.
