Just a little bench to use up some of the scraps building a pile in the corner, I can’t hardly stand to throw any wood away. More of a garden accent than anything, size is not very practical and way out of proportion but much nicer looking this way than in a heap in the corner!

Jen, that is one sharp looking bench and I think that you have done a wonderful job in the making of it.

I like the whimsical designs on the back.

This would be great as a porch plant stand, too. But then, I put plants on anything :)

good idea for some scraps! I like the white back rest in contrast with the rest of the wood – The cut outs add a cool touch!

A great use of scraps, and the wee one seems to enjoy it as well!
