Recycle! All components are either scrap/cut offs from other projects or my son’s disassembled bed.

Very pleased with the outcome, painted due to the wonderfully ugly greenish hue of treated lumber, left over 4×4’s from fence project.

Hope it inspires – just a clean geometric project that I saw from a pile of stuff in my way…

Great job – looks like a nice bench! Recycling is the best – especially when it can turn out this nice! Thanks for posting. Only thing left is figuring out what type of plant goes in there – or is that the wife’s job?
