Most of the design for this project came from what was left of an old pine bench found rotting in the bushes of a back yard and my experience with building church pews..

Constructed of 8/4 bald cypress and fastened with Weldwood Plastic Resin glue and SS screws.

Left natural without any finish so it would gray out and blend into the landscape.

This was a fun, but heavy, project.
