this was something I trew together the other day, I didnt get any during pictures, IOt was a few slab cutoffs I have had laying around, I squared the ends up, and screwed a runner to the bottom,, and a rail to accept the seat to the top.. planed down a few pieces of oak boards I had for the seat,, and added a maple sapling for a spacer in the middle to keep from bowing in,,

the dimensions for this ended u p being, 36” long x 13 1/2” wide x 20” high,, this is going to be an outside seat for my pumpkin farm, I need to make a few for people to sit on while the kids are playing,, I am hoping to make a few different styles and types so it doesnt get boring, and maybe people will get an idea of what I can do and build a few,, thansk for looking, pat

I have some rough cut (chainsaw mill) poplar I’m saving for a similar project. Thanks for sharing…
