My wife has always wanted a garden bench to sit on while the grandkids played, then one day the May issue of Wood magizine was laying on the floor. That’s when she saw the picture on the front cover. The rest of the story is in the pictures. It’s made of Western Red Cedar and several coats of General Finishes Exterior 450. I was a little reluctant to use a water base finish, however I’m very pleased with the clear coating. We’ll see how it holds up.

Excellent piece. And if you wife needs it to watch the grandkids, then she NEEDS it … and so do you! Enjoy!

VERY nice piece of furniture

If your wife decides that it may be too uncomfortable to sit for very long I’d be happy to stop over and pick it up and you can try another one ‹(•¿•)›
