Hey Jocks and Jockettes,

This is a little project I made under contract for my neighbor Bobbi. She wanted a bench/plant stand for the deck. It is an anniversary gift for her husband Rick. He is the one with the green thumb. They mostly wanted something to get the plants up off the deck. We also thought that company could sit on it for one of their famous fish fries, namely me. The bench is made of pressure-treated 2×4’s and 5/4 thick deck. Materials and screws, about $40. Bobbi wants to either stain it or paint it a bright accent color that seems to be in vogue now. She will have to let it dry out for a while first. Thought it turned out well and it is very sturdy. It’s a nice little project you can churn out fast. Thanks fo lookin.
