    For a more permanent fixture I use wire closet shelving on treated stair risers for decks. Not as cheap as some but a very long life span.

    Sorry I am only now seeing this thread. Here are some photos of benches which I made. They are 5 years old and going strong.
    The frames are made of PVC inch and a half pressure 40 pipe. The trays are a heavy gague chicken wire. I put these togethr myself.
    Hope i am of some help.
