No 2 Son sent a picture of his friends Bench seat his Dad had made him.

No2 Son asked if i could make one for him too.
So not being able to pass up a challenge I said yes.

So under the cover of my timber stash I went

I first thought this piece would do the trick nicely.

However sadly enough no, too much rubbish, mortices, foreign objects and natural defects to get a usable length.

So I de buried treasure it

Ended up with a few pieces about 500mm long which were use-able

Eventually I decided to use it for legs.

then dragged out a second piece

Ripped it into three lengths about 45mm x 140 mm x 1800

That was enough for today.

Yep you guessed it, Red IronBark again, so it should look fantastic when finished.

Opps been hit with the sideways pictures issue standby!( should be Fixed now!)

-- Regards Rob

Did you keep them? With the proliferation of synthetics, they’ll be worth a fortune in 500 years!

My #1 son tried that on me years ago… I told him to get his friend’s dad to make him one too!

regardless the reason, this is pretty much a “from scratch” build
