I took some 6’ fence gateds from reclaimed wood and made two garden benches. Lots of fun saving old fences from the dump. I sold both for 50.00 each and they sold fast. A little scroll work and some nails and screws go a long way. One bench was cutout in hearts and the other in a small Texas up front.Added a glass top table to the Texas bench to match.

That is the right way to give new life to old wood! Well done!

Great job, I do the same sort of thing. I live on the Potomac river and its very common for pieces of docks to wash up (often red or white oak). Keep it up!
