My parents built their house in 1962. That summer my Father bought a redwood picnic table. It has been outside till the spring of this year (2011). The metal garden bench was my Mothers that I had got for her quite a few years back. I figured that old picnic table had another 49 years left in her so decided to recycle the redwood and fix the bench. Had enough redwood for a table too!

That is a very good save. Two great pieces created out of old and in the way things. Great job!

Shannon and Maddy are good elves! They sure know what to pick out for you. If you still have one of those blanks I’ll get it next time we or Nana are out there. Too bad we didnt get to cut the catalpa for you. When I do I will send you a hunk.
