Well I finally got around to installing my wife’s garden bench a few weeks ago, just in time for the Garden bench contest. Made of Iroko, it has oxidized to a beautiful color and is the envy of the neighborhood. To prevent it from walking away I epoxied stainless anchors to the concrete and used through bolts in the legs with permanent Locktight on the threads. It’s not a theft proof system but it’ll sure slow the buggers down.

Georgeous. So sad to think someone might try to steal it – but it shows they have great taste.
