It has been a while since I have added any projects here but we have been busy. The rustic benches have been really popular.

Very nice! Are these cedar? I would worry about the legs warping being that they’re solid. I guess they don’t though since you did it that way.

Thanks for the kind words. These benches are made from 12-16 inch wide and 2 inch thick white pine. The first one was just a rainy day project using scrap lumber. The won’t last long outside but do look good while they last. We are only getting $20.00 apiece for them without words or pictures. If they request them customized we add a little more. He has made some from poplar and red cedar. I have seen one or two warp a little but not noticeably.

These are done with a router then painted in. I am not really good at the painting but the belt sander will fix any mistakes.

More Maple? These are great. I do some similar benches in Cedar and they are one of my best sellers. Do you use any type of oil or finish?

We made one like these in red cedar just the other day but I failed to get a picture of it before it was sold. I usually use a polyurethane fininsh on the cedar signs, I like the way it makes them turn so red. I have just started trying out some Thompson’s water seal and that looks good too. Not slick and shiny but still a nice red color.
