I’ve decided to make my wife her Christmas gift this year rather then just go buy her something. Here is one of the things she’s been asking for. It’s made from cedar fence boards with an epay decking board top I found in a dumpster on a job I was working on. Thanks for looking .

Oh yeah! One day I’ll remember to turn the phone when I take pictures of my work to post on here. Sorry.

Hey MrGoodCat, I gotta admit that your photo’s are posted in so many different ways that I’m not really sure what you want us to see. I’m not that bright sometimes. Can you help me out as to which photo you want us to see or is it a some sort of all around photo experience?? Thanks for the feedback…....................................

I have a question about this piece. I ended up with very fine white stripes from the glue up of the top. I used tight bond 3. should I have used a diffrent glue or is there a way to avoid this?

Nice job! What did you do across the back? Just curious for the sturdiness of it as a bench.

Thanks!
Anthony

The epay decking boards used for the top are 1” thick and glued together. Being a very dence wood they don’t flex at all carrying the load to the legs. The back is 5/8” x5 1/2 cedar virtical slats glued and nailed to a 1 1/2”x 1 1/2 ” pine inner structure with a barn door style x over top it all. I’m still new at this but it seems very strong after some testing.
