This was made with a skill saw, jig saw, and screw driver. It made me realize I like woodworking.

This is really nice bench. I assume that you did not put a finish on it and are going to let it age naturally. This project shows that you do not need an arsenal of tools to get into woodworking.

Nice job.

What kind of ceder is this, the kind I get around here is a lot darker and doesn’t have the character, It is a nice bench.

very nice…even with a full flotilla of tools this is great—-but knowing that your tool selection is a little bit wanting…this is even more amazing…

will you put a finish on it or let it grey with age???

now you need to parlay this wonderful acheivement into an added tool collection—-I got into woodworking last year when I told my wife—-lets save money on that outdoor furniture—-and buy tools..then I will build it…
