This was made following plans from The New Yankee Workshop. I’ve made a total of 9 in the past 5 years. A majority of them were donated to Church for a raffle grand prize. Made from #1 common Redwood and sealed with an oil/alkyn resin with a slight tint, it stands up to the weather for years and is put together with Mortise & Tenon jointery.

More info is here. —->>

Thanks for looking!

I thought I recognized the design of the bench. I have to agree with Lew that Norm would put his seal of approval on this. :)

Nice job. I enjoyed seeing this project.
