this is made from redwood driftwood and cedar legs. I’m gonna have my 14 year old nephew help me make a bunch of these to sell at farmers market this summer. should be a quick enough project to hold his interest, and garden benches always sell great. I use what ever wood I have.

I like furntures made of natural timber like this one. With that additional carving, you did very well. Good luck in selling. Thanks for sharing.

Great job! Now put a little stamp pad on the carving and you’ll know who sat on it! LOL!
