I love building garden benches in the winter, but nevertheless this is one contest I will be entering. By the time it’s over, it will be spring here and I’ve got the perfect place for it. The last bench I made was run over by a truck :( This time, the objective is to do damage to the truck!

I look forward to seeing all the entries.

It will be nice to watch them all come in without having to worry about getting mine done in time, since I won’t be entering this contest.
