This is one nice table/bench. It is very sturdy in construction; good thing it is made from Cedar, or it would weight a ton.

Any finish on the Cedar?

this is great. I really like the look of the bench. And the back just flips over to form the table??? Cool

That is a cool design. Did you come up with that or was it from a set of plans?

I’ve seen these tables before, but you did an exceptional job on it. Looks like your own plans. jockmike

Cool design, but will it support a 20lb turkey without someone sitting on the bench?
