Stick bench to park (and leave) beside the river at my secret fishing spot.

Looks great ! I hope you enjoy your bench and fishing spot for many years to come.

Tell me where you fish so I can enjoy your fishing hole. If your chair is missing, someone else stole it….

Great looking rustic fishing bench! I’m sure you’ll spend many enjoyable hours on it!

Very cool! I’m adding this to my watch list. It never a couple years, update us on how it’s holding up to the weather. I’d love to make a bench or chair similar to this to set on our back porch. Maybe with a more contoured back. But I worry that a design like this one won’t hold up outdoors. The mortise-and-tenon style benches seem like they’ll be more durable.

What wood is it made from, btw?

I don’t expect this bench to last more then a few years. I did dig a brick under each leg to keep it from rotting too soon and put a plastic tarp over it last fall. The wood is green Poplar and dead white pine. It’s just something I threw together so I could keep my butt and lunch off a cold wet stump or rock.

Nicely done, looks very relaxing to sit in
