with winter time coming , Know up north its been there a while but down here i just mowed my yard i hope for the last time for a while , its been getting down into the 40s at nite and what we love to do around here is build a fire in the pit and swap lies ,drink a drink and just visit with friend s and let the kids roast winners , , i myself would a lot rather do that then go to the mall or shop , just let me have a drink and relax a while , this bench is a easy build and some what comfortable , .im sure there are a lot of things a person could do with it to dress it up , but i just needed a KISS bench, as i was once told KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID , :) .here are some links but i found em on https://www.pinterest.com/ ........http://adkfamilytime.blogspot.com/2012/01/aldo-leopold-bench-plans.html .......... these are just a few there are many , its simple ,fast and only a couple of boards , i used 2×12x10 but im going to build one more and thinking 2×10 , thanks for looking and yall have a merry Christmas …........

Good job, Eddie! You captured the design very well, I need to put a couple of these out by my Little Free Library. Thanks for the inspiration.

rest thine weary backside down
and rejoice with the spirit
exalt in the children
roasting their wennies

nice work eddie
looks easier than those sling chairs
that flop around
when you go to use ‘em
