Back in 20016, I made my sister 2 garden benches for her huge flower garden.
But, I made them from regular pine, instead of pressure-treated wood.
After 9 years of outdoor service in Central Illinois, they finally started to rot away.
I made her 2 new benches of pressure-treated….....that will hopefully last longer than me on planet Earth :)
I used galvanized steel brackets set in concrete, to support the 4 legs….....plus keep the bench from being blown over with the stiff winds we have.
We will let them dry outdoors for a few weeks, then paint them white using Zinssers white paint.
If you interested in my trials & tribulations of making these benches, see my woodworking web site.
