I built this bench for my mom on mothers day. I used “pecky” “sinker” and #2 cypress which i got for free from an old mill that was shut down years ago. The planks were covered in dirt and to the un-informed did not look like it was worth salvage. I did’nt show any emotions when i seen it yet i offered to take that pile of “TRASH” away for them. Got over 1000 board foot for free.
I decided to keep the back riser at only a 6 degree slant and made it very tall, to give it a “Church Pew” feel.
It is suprizingly comfortable and mom keeps getting compliments on it so i guess i did OK.
