This Garden bench is one of four made from decking recycled from my back deck about 5 years old.
I followed the plans I purchased from NewYankee.com from the Norm Abrams plans. I have always found them to work well. I miss his show, but I am sure he is on to a new great adventure.
This was on my bucket list for 8 years and I got too excited as I have two half completed. I am also shifting to 4 ft benches as the latest relatives to make requests want something a little smaller.
Finished with clear stain, Shellac and 2 coats of marine varnish.
My brother’s copy is in his backyard woods on the path to lake Bemidji, in Minnesota. The finish will be challenged there by the pine needles and sap as well as snow and animals, we will see.
