I made this for a customer who put it at their cottage on the lake. It is made out of locally grown and sawed white cedar. I put a coat of sealer on called Raincoat by Para paint. It protects it from the uv and rains until the customer can put on their own satin. It also turns the white cedar to the honey color.

Hi Pipes,

welcome to LJ’s…

Great bench…nice legs man! On the finish…you mention that the customer will add a stain later…(as a beginner with little finishing experience)...I am wondering if the customer will have to remove the finish first—-or can they put the new stain right on top…

By the way….i love the color of the current finish…to keep that…just reapply every season???

GREAT looking bench——you see so many of the same designs this design is very unique.
I am curious on the techique and process for making the shaped legs.

That is one nice looking bench. Almost too nice to be outside. The curved legs really make the bench. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
