Every year in May our little town has a Kiwanis “on air” radio auction to raise money for the Kiwanis club and I always make something for the auction, This bench was made for the 2007 auction and brought $135 for the club.
It is constructed of Poplar and is all mortis and tenon joinery. I sprayed it with Kilz exterior primer (oil base) and then 2 coats of exterior white oil based paint with an HVLP gun.

The initial planning consisted of going to Walmart and buying 2 clay pots….......the bench was built around the pots.

good idea having the pots hanging off like that. keeps any water away from the rest of it. Nice job.
