Let me first apologize for the positions of the two pictures. No matter how many times I loaded them, they would not position correctly.
My neighbor has a bench seat that was really weather beaten. She asked my wife if I could attempt to refinish the bench if she bought the Spa Varnish. So I took nearly a week to wear out my belt sander to get down to wood that was suitable to refinish. Flat black on the metal. Golden oak stain on the wood with 5 coats of Spa Varnish. Finished product looked better than the original. I have not asked about the two chairs that go with this set, but included one of them to give you an idea of the condition of the wood. The bench slats did not have the cracks seen in the example but was otherwise equal in its poor condition. It was not a very fun project, but it was appreciated.
