Hi there this is another bench I built for the same customer, a while back. This bench was designed off the one my grandfather made in the early 60’s as a bench to site by the waterfall in the back of the house ,(Which is still running on the same motor…) The bench has two cement blocks that the customer had, and I bought an 8 foot piece of cedar decking. It is stained with a dark cedar stain the customer had order…
Hope you enjoy.

Thanks, Michael Frey

Very neat! I like how you took two common items and turned them into something uncommon!

I may be taking this idea and making it my own!

Thanks for posting this.

Very nice job. Looks like it is very sturdy.

I am going to try one of these… I like the use of the decorative block.

Your creativity and energy never ceases to amaze me. Great work.
