Great looking bench! My daugher and her husband just finished 3 benches like yours. Good job!

I have four benches to rebuild…again. This time i plan on using cypress instead of oak. I hope they come out as nice as yours. I am sure others have the same problem as the original wood for these benches turns to dust fairly quickly.
