This was built for our local animal shelter. They auctioned off a memorial plaque to be put on it. The funds are to build a new building where the bench will be in the reception area.
The bench is made of stacked 2×4 and 2×6. It’s not actually a solid stack but built to look like one

GEEZ, you must have BIG DOGS over there.

Great idea and it should look very good in it’s new surroundings.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Love this. Hope it raised a lot of money for the shelter.

The auction was last night. The winning bid was $500 for the memorial plaque. The family of a friend of mine got it for her grandpa that passed last year. She is also the same friend that works with the shelter and asked me to make a “bench”. Very happy for them! The shelter also has a donor that’s going to match $50,000 in fundraising for the new building!

All for a Wonderful cause. I’m pretty sure one of our dogs has a bone just like that laying around here somewhere

Larry, I hope it’s not that big!
Thanks for all the comments. Had to go pick it up from the fundraiser this morning. Now to store it until they get the new building built! Lol, part of the deal. But if we get attracted by a large dog I feel as though I would be prepared!
