I made a first version of this bench as a birthday present for my brother-in-law in 2007. This one was intended as a donation for the park at the end of our road but when I finished it we kept it and put it next to the swimming pool where we can sit and watch our children.

Nice bench—I should make one of these; it’s way nicer than the stuff I’ve built for the outdoors!

Great looking bench. I’d love the angle for the back rest.
