Garden benches that I take to the shows. I use clear Western Red Cedar for the legs & frame, the tops are either Purple Heart or Ipe. 18” high x 19” Deep x 56” Wide. These are usually a custom order I make up 1 to start the season.

Nice looking bench, I think the legs makes this stand above the traditional garden bench, Beatiful work.

Very nice! I always like curves. It feels like you care to make it you.

Added to favorites – I like it. How do you round over the edges of the Ipe? That stuff is like a rock.
