I love that bench Monte. I built a patio cart out of honey locust. Strong heavy stuff.

Fantastic design and construction! Where is the slab from, if South Dakota I was unaware that those beautiful trees grew North. I’ve seen them in TN, AL, MS FL, and NC It’s cousin Black Locus is extremely hard and rot resistant. As an example dock supports extending into the water are known to be still performing well after 40 years.

Wondering when your next project was coming. It’s a “honey” of a bench! Did you use metal fasteners?
