I built this bench using redwood salvaged from our church renovation in 2008. The redwood had been used for over 30 years trimming/covering the steel uprights in the sanctuary. They are a full 1.13”thick, 9” wide, 13’ to 16’. I glued up the legs and stretchers, used mortise and tenon joints. The seat slats were attached with screws and plugged. I plan to use it in a meditation garden on the church grounds. I used the general plan of a bench I saw here from a fellow LJ who I believe credited the original plan to someone else. I’m appreciative to him and all LJs who share tips and techniques so generously.
