Most of you have already figured out that I have been building a lot of things going into the motorcycle rally. It’s been fun, but a lot of work. In actuality I didn’t get everything finished. But there’s always tomorrow.

This bench is Maple slabs with weathered elm legs. I started to clean up the elm and decided that I liked some of the weathered look. It’s 54 inches wide, 36 inches tall and 22 inches deep. Several coats of oil based poly for finish.

Thanks for reading and all comments are welcome

Monte I’ve seen a similar bench outside my old coffee shop. Always liked it.

Great look to this bench. Has great seat appeal like “its always been there on the porch”.

Son! I say Son! Them boards are just plumb crooked. Did you loose yer glasses? Dad blamed newfangled styles. Gonna drive me to drink just trying to figure how to passout on it. Well just put it on my back porch and I’ll figure it out over time. OK. So don’t get the swell head, but it looks great.
