Western Red Cedar is pretty rot resistant so it’s good in our wet climate for outdoor stuff. This is a Tudor style bench based on a plan I got from Lee Valley Tools. The plan says it is beginner level but that’s a bit optimistic as the back is tilted 10 degrees off vertical so some of the 48 or so motise and tenon joints are not exactly beginner level IMHO. I find most plans disappoint in one way or another.
This bench has a few years of wear and tear on it so you can see that the cedar does stand up pretty well.
