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.

The bench looks really nice. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

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.
