This bench ended up a lot bigger than I thought it would be. It was a special order form a customer. Turns out, she had good taste. I received 5 orders for the Granddaddy after this one was completed.

Looks good but you might want to consider beefing up the rear legs to a 2×6 if you get a couple of beefy guys on it, it is liable to break!

Now that’s a bench! I might need to steal that idea, LOL

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

There’s something wrong in that picture, or is Todd just doing some serious testing of the bench testing before he releases to his customer. lol

That is mostly what it is about. Sometimes it is just for fun.

It is 60” of seating. About 70” from arm to arm. Thank you for looking!

Actually this was made from reclaimed wood, as all my projects are. Several large pallets. I put the finish on it. Thank you for looking!
