Rustic Cedar Garden Bench

Here is a garden bench I just recently finished, it is constructed of Aromatic Red Cedar bookmatched planks and native Juniper Ashe posts and subframe, 1.5 and 1 inch mortise and tenons, the arch in the back made it a little more challenging as each piece had to be custom fitted and cut. I finished it with Australian Timber Oil so it will hold up outside or on a porch. It is funny there was some moss growing on the bark, and I had two friends come by the shop and say it looked cool with the unintentionally left moss on there, so I left it, I was going to sand it off, instead I just worked around it. The bench is 5 foot long and the seat is 19 inches high.

Nice job on the bench. I’ve been looking for an idea to make a few but sometimes just need to see a basic design.

That should be sitting on my porch :) Did you use a tool like the Tenon maker to make the joints?

Thanx for all the kind comments and yes snowdog I did use the Logman Tenon Maker, a heck of alot cheaper and does the job with out having to buy 5-6 expensive bits….and I can get those free-form weird angle tenons alot easier…

Be well
