This was my first attempt at a garden bench.
1/2 the dividers are dead on and then when I joined the 2nd half of the bench, not so much. It was the tape measure, yea that’s what it was. :-)
It’s painted bright red now because my Daughter wanted the bench and red is her favorite color.

I have the same brand of tape measure.
You can always rely on it to be unreliable.

LOL I hear ya, looks great. FYI ,,,A Master on here taught me to only use one tape measure during the whole project and not to use what ever one is close. To my surprise I was amazed at how subtle yet obviuos the difference made.

Jrm13 you’re right, I needed glasses for that one. One of my very early projects, it gets better with time for sure.
