I got an inquiry a while ago from a fellow woodworker about this bench that I was ask to make. I got a photo of it in the mail this past week so I looked around and found some other photos and thought that I should go ahead and post it.
It’s a bench made to honor John Perry from some of his golfing /drinking buddies at Boomers in Oak Hill, Texas. We took the bench to a little golf coarse in Austin,Texas near the intersection of Lamar & Barton Springs. We set it up on top of the hill under the pecan trees overlooking the golf coarse. I’m sure that JP would love for any woodworkers /golfers in the area playing golf to have a seat on his bench in the shade and enjoy the view and some of what’s good about Austin.
I made the bench out of redwood and used linseed oil to finish it. There is a caretaker still applying linseed oil to it from time to time. I used 4×4 post bases with large washers set in concrete to hold the legs out of the dirt to make it last.
