Many times I make things that are requested by headquarters battalion and this cedar project, along with change orders to tongue and groove top (not my rec) was made in Bellevue, WA in 2006. All outdoor wood projects in that country that I did were western red cedar, sometimes mixed, but all got stained except this one, also a directive from HQ.
This is the completed project with the exception of the hardware I attached to the two drawers as pulls. I purchased new inexpensive garden impletments (hand tools – a three prong fork and a trowel/planter) and mounted them horizontally and painted the wooden handles in brighter colors. Works fine but needs repainting from time to time.
Here in snow land, the bench goes in by end of October and doesn’t come out again until May.
This cowboy has held up well and gets a lot of use. Not pretty but way functional for the Master Gardener in the fam.
