$26 for redwood at the BORG, some screws, my trusty nail gun, plus one weekend.

Result is one bench. I made a circle at the end of each armrest large enough to support a coffee cup. Bench will be left unfinished to weather naturally.

Very nice. I may steal your design. We don’t have redwood down in Texas, but we do have cedar.
