I was asked about a economy bench for a community garden. Picture shows result.

T & E design again. From armrest to armrest is 8 feet 2 inches long.

Will be almost donated; I am making my $.02 per hour; still cheeeeeeeaper than golf, fishing, or shooting!

Keeps hands and mind both working too.

All rescued wood; mostly cedar. Hey I use new screws!

It is strong enough that I jumped on both seats and the table too. I am not large(about 145 lbs,) but that should be sturdy enough,

That looks like it belongs in a garden, a top place to sit, read, enjoy a cuppa and take in the surrounds….

Well done on recycling the timber; I bet it was when screws & the lacquer that put the costing over the top!!

That’s a great looking garden bench. I would be happy to park my trunk on it. Nice work.
