Well when we moved into our new house, The previous owner had this park bench outside. It was pretty beat up. The wood was rotted and falling off and the cast iron sides were very rusted. While cleaning up the yard, TLOML said to throw it away. I dragged it over to my shop to take it apart ,to scarp the iron, and that’s when I had an Idea. I’ll rebuild it and give it back to TLOML as a surprise. I made the slat’s all out of pine and stained them really good. The Letters are also made of pine and were first made on my home computer then printed out, taken to the shop, cut out then double face taped to the wood. I then cut the wood on my scroll saw and then rounded the edges with the Router table. I screwed them into place from the back side of the bench and the way I have the white area recessed makes them look like they are on a cloud. Needless to say she was speechless when I gave it to her.
