Afternoon project. It’s 60 inches tall, 40 inches wide and about 175 pounds. This one has a bottom in it. I don’t normally stain anything made of landscape timbers, but it’s what the customer wanted. For outdoor stain I use CabotAustrslian Timber Oil.

Thanks for llooking

That is a very sturdy looking piece of yard art and at 175# it should stay put .

Looks like a great job. If it were yours, you could just tie it down to one of those ROCKS in the background.

Great job Monte. I’m sure they will love it. Built one similar years ago and set in in front of the house. I added a rope, bucket, and handle {hint} to mine. From time to time when cutting the grass I’ll find money in there. Either my neighbors like it or are very wishful.

Great looking well Monte. I think the logs look better than the lumber type ones, although it must be pretty heavy to move around.

Nice job Monte. Industrial strength with that design. I like the color the stain brought to the piece. Hope they find a suitable place for it and don’t think about moving it around once there!
