After looking around at suitable wood and metal for my plinth I finally came across some oak cuts and a perfect stainless steel pole which is used for the manufacture of exhaust pipes. After consulting with an engineering student on the best way to make the plinth we decided that we would construct it in the following way – An A4 sized 2mm mild steel plate is to be welded to the bottom of the stainless steel pole. A 2 inch hole will be drilled through the middle of a piece of A4 sized oak which will then be dropped over the pole on top of the steel plate and then screwed down. A 2mm mild steel plate will then be welded on top of the plinth at a 45degree angle where two more pieces of A4 sized oak are screwed onto the plate and 2 lips will then be screwed to the very bottom of the steel plate. All the oak is to be given a burnt finish to give the plinth an older feel.
