This is how the Dane spent spare time in July and August.
Actually, the long bench on the right was built in 2006, using a pattern in WOOD Magazine.
The chair is an option detailed in the original WOOD article, and the glider is a varient of the optional settee in the same article.
The stock used is Western red cedar from a local home center.
The finish used is a two-part epoxy (2 coats … Smith & Co.’s CPES Warm – Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer) and three coats of spar varnish (Epifanes Gloss Clear Varnish). The finishing materials came from Jamestown Distributors (http://www.jamestowndistributors.com).
The original bench has sat outside year-round, and cleans up with a little OxyClean and warm water.
