So I built an arbor over the summer, and about half way through that project I realized I’d have enough cedar left over for another project. I use a lot of flooring, find it cheap or free on craigslist, so a pile of cedar flooring turned into the arbor and this bench.
The design is from Fine Woodworking, an article on an outdoor bench, though I re-drew it in SU to adjust for the change in dimensions as this was all flooring and glued up flooring.
All the joints are domino loose tenons, finished the bench with tung oil. This is the 2nd outdoor bench I’ve built, the first was quite honestly, terrible, my own design and with many flaws, so thanks to FWW for a really nice design.
