I made this bench out of old cypress barn wood. I hand planed the exposed edges, retaining any nail holes, but I left the hidden faces with their history intact. You can have it both ways.

I like kdc’s suggestion as well. I didn’t have the issue with edge glue-ups, since the barn boards were wide enough to make the five-board bench without having to do a glue-up.
