I built this bench for a friend was able to work out most of the kinks with the first one I built so this went a lot smoother decided to plane down some barn wood that was given to me to bring out the color and grain of the wood. I ripped it down and put the pieces together with the pocket hole jig to create two slabs. I used my friend's brand for the center of the back and put several others on the seat to make it more interesting. I finished it off with three coats of gloss urethane. The frame is 98 horseshoes.
