This was put together by me BUT the pieces are from a trash pile. I “found” 3 different wood seats and 12 dowel rods that someone was throwing away. Scarffed them up, took them home and cleaned them up and sanded the seats and dowells. I drilled the holes in the seat and then fashioned the dowells to fit. Took me about 90 minutes to put this together and then ….........I figured I would try my hand at an inlay. I used colored sand and CA glue. I am happy as can be how well it turned out for my first attempt at doing an inlay. Now I am gonna counter-sink the screws and do them in the same color sand. I’m not sure what kind of wood these are but the seat is a soft wood. I finished it with natural Danish oil.
This may not be a big deal to some of y’all but I am just tickled to death how well it turned out. I am gonna use it as an outdoor shop seat for “visitors.”
As always, thanks for looking
