FWW’s GArden Bench for All Seasons is my next project. http://www.taunton.com/finewoodworking/ProjectsAndDesign/ProjectsAndDesignPDF.aspx?id=2530
He makes a small bench to withstand the yearlong offerings of a Maine climate. Should work ok for central Indiana. He uses Spanish Cedar, marine epoxy and copper rivets. My budget called for cypress, Gorilla Glue and copper rivets. Oh yeah, I also acquired a couple of vintage Stanley planes, #5 and #7, and learned to sharpen and handle them to thickness and join my lumber. I was stoked.
