This poor old bench needed a big make over. I got the timber free from a local hardware store.

Nice work! I think the higher back should make it more comfortable.

I have what looks like the same bench awaiting new wood! Of course it has been ‘waiting’ for over 10 years now. I have a small stash of Ipe which should delay the inevitable decay for a few decades.

Nice Job! I am in the process of redoing two benches that are in bad shape. It has red oak now. It will have
select cypress now. I bought enough wood to build two end tables with a ceramic tile insert in the top.
