My sister’s passion is gardening, and she has the largest garden in our town. I have made many yard ornaments for her over the years, some from pressure-treated, some from cedar. Everything gets painted white for her garden ornaments.

Her old small garden bench finally rotted out, so she asked me to build her a new one just like it. I chose to do it in cedar. Many lumber yards are out of pressure-treated due to the virus, and cedar will make a light weight bench she can put away each winter here in Central Illinois.

For more details on how I built this bench, see my woodworking web site using this link.

I also uploaded my design to the Sketchup Warehouse, and you can use this link to download it.

Thanks

Nice Cedar is a good choice, Pressure treated wood can leech poison on to your skin. Love to see a pic of it in the garden.
