This was made from recycled tongue and groove cedar planks, even the lattice was made from it as well. The legs started out as 4×4 pressure treated recycled fence posts. They were cut down to 3” square and planed, I added a small block of pvc trim to the feet since I thought it was going to stand on a concrete deck. The wife decided it should be on the front covered porch. It has three coats of Thompson’s water sealer.

Very nice. I like the lattice. It’s better looking then peg board but you can still hang items off it.
Nice job.

Pat, I have been wanting to make one of those for years. I really have to make one like yours! I like the lattice back and the pegs and little shelf part!
Has the Thompson’s Water Seal lasted, or do you have to redo it. I have not been able to find a good outdoor finish.

Julie, my wife liked it too much so it resides on our covered front porch. She said it was too nice to leave out in the weather,totally defeating the reason I made it. The weatherseal is holding up real well in “these tough conditions”. LOL

I have seen many without backs and I love the lattice. Are you in a warm climate (your profile doesn’t say), is that what you meant, or just that it’s on the porch. I’m in Northern Ontario and we get real cold and real hot, believe it or not.

I’m in New Jersey, USA. It gets really hot and cold here as well. My tongue in cheek comment was that it only sits on the porch and has never seen the sun,snow or rain.
