Need bench measurements - will pay

Posted by jrr4 on Tue Feb 21 18:47:26 2012

Hi guys, I need the measurements for one of the MTA subway wooden benches. I'm going to build my own but since I'm in GA it's a little hard for me to get the measurements. Would someone be willing to send me detailed pictures and measurements? Would need all the dimensions down the the 1/4 inch of the sides, seat, legs, back, and dividers including board thickness, length and width. I'd be willing to pay $25.00 for the effort if someone will take some measurements for me.

I'm in GA, shipping would be horrible, plus I don't see any available.

This should give you start.



The wall tile is 6" X 6".

Which measurements do you need? No charge for the service.

If that were so, the distance from top of stone base tile to the bottom of mosaic frieze would be 5' 4". 6" tiles make it 7' 6". The length of the bench based on a 4 1/4" tile would be 7', based on a 6" tile the bench length would be 10'.

The floor tiles are 18" X 18.

Wow Train Dude, I really appreciate it. I pretty much need all the measurements. I know it's alot to ask but I want to be as accurate as possible. I'll send you something to make up for your efforts.

All floor tiles are a foot wide if I am not mistaken, I never saw larger 18X18 floor tiles, they look like the standard ones to me.

Considering homeless people may have deficated/soiled on those very seats, I wouldn't blame the op in not wanting to by those very benches.

I'd still love to have one, just getting one to GA will be tough. Looking at the amount of wood this thing is gonna take to build though, it may be cheaper to ship a real one. Looking at dozens of planks.

The tiles at 28/7 might be 18 inches, but they are much larger. Elsewhere, nearly everything is one foot, outside of the 1980s tile jobs.

They ARE going to sell them for $650.
There was a story on the news, they are replacing the wooden benchs with stainless steel ones as money allows.
They started with Whitehall st..

True and less labor, but I would pour 'tons' of disinfectant liquid cleaners on a bench before bringing it in.
