So I got this garden bench cheap somewhere a few years ago- it was new but the wood was so lightweight I knew it would never last in our climate. You can see from the second pic (before) what it looked like 3 years later. The first pic is what it looks like now after the refurb. I replaced all the slats with Ipe decking.

It looks good and I’m sure it will last for a very long time. Great job!
