My daughters birthday present. Cedar with copper leaves across the top. Harder than I first thought, but persevered. Hope it will be special to her since her mother made it. First time not using any nails or screws. Thanks for looking.Picture of back of bench. Sorry it took so long. I used super glue and copper nails to add the leaves. They are embossed.

Hoping it’s distortion in the picture…....otherwise it would appear that the arms are too low in comparisson to the height of the seat.

Beautiful cedar bench nezzer! My first thought on the arms was ‘Perfect height for reclining and reading a book!’ Could you post a close up picture of the leaves? Are they carved and painted or copper inlays or…? Thanks for sharing.

Your bench looks great and sturdy. I’m sure your daughter will cherish it and she’ll enjoy using it for a long time.
