Outdoor Bench Repair.
Outdoor Bench Repair. No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

This bench was a really easy fix, all I had to do was replace the seat boards. I used 3/4’’ cedar for the seat, which is weather treated wood. Cedar is great outdoor wood, it will never go bad. Then all I had to do was screw the seat boards to the bench. This was a really easy fix, but little stuff changes the whole project.

Thanks for reading,

What kinds of screws did you use to attach the boards to the bench? Did you use any outdoor stain for the cedar? You wouldn’t want it to rot or anything.
