These are the benches that go with the deck table I posted previously. They are 74” long and 18” tall. The lumber is 2” thick.

The last 2 pictures are a pine bench for another customer. It’s 54” wide and 36” tall. All are made of Beetle Kill Pine.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Another winner, Monte! You must have a twin that keeps working while you’re at work at your “real” job . . .

Monte, that’s exactly how outdoor gear should look like, but, this looks even better, I would love to sit back with a beer & get stuck into a Barbie on this setting, well done mate

Good benches for your table. Do you ever let the dust settle in your shop?

Looks great (as usual)
Do you ever do anything that’s NOT beetle kill pine? You seem to have an endless supply! (And I’m jealous!)
