I wanted to make use of a bunch of 6×6 cut-offs I had from a deck project, so I ended up with this on my deck. It’s 9’ long and 42” wide. Probably weighs 350lbs. It’s held together with 6” sts screws and 3” deck screws. I’ll do a couple of 42” long benches for one side of it eventually. Haven’t decided if I’m going to finish it or just let it go gray.

That thing is a BEAST! I love it. Seems like 350 lbs is on the low side!

I’m favoriting this one.

Is the top PT or something else? Very nice use of “leftovers”. ;-)

Thanks for the comments

Top is PT also. Thought about using white oak, but couldn’t justify the cost when I already had some PT laying around. I think I have about 40 bucks and 6 hours into this thing.
