  1. Garden Bench with "personal picnic butler" - Red, White, Greene and Greene

    I had this design in my head for quite some time and I new that I had to have side tables so you can have a place for your plate and a beverage. and I must say those side tables (picnic butler) get a lot of use. Every BBQ I have, it's the favorite place to eat. I originally made this for my...
  2. Garden Bench

    I was looking at my profile the other day and realized that it had been quite a while since I posted anything. To remedy that, here is a garden bench I built this summer. It's made mostly of 4×4's, with a couple of 2×4's and a 1×4 tossed in for good measure. I'm always conflicted about what...
  3. Garden Bench

    This is my first time at doing the entire project using handtools,.......it took way to long. So, the wood is scraps of Port Orchid White Cedar, joints are M&T with epoxy on the bottom of the legs. Enjoy
  4. Japanese Garden Bench

    So here's the finished project. At least with one coat of stain. I will add another coat then some outdoor oil. Check out the blog for progress photos. This was a fun project and I really enjoyed using the Mortise Pal (see review). Next time I will make some of the lines a little more thick...
  5. A Couple of Garden Benches

    These were a fun Quick project for my honey. The oak one I build out of an old bar top, that I salvaged from dump. It smelled a little like wiskey, Very hard wood, we finished that with BLO. The other whie one we whitewashed and couple coats of exterior poly. Thanks for looking, Bob.
  6. Adirondack Double Settee

    This is my version of the deck settee for two from the WOOD magazine book "35 Great Outdoor Projects". The wood is larch (from the lumbermill near where I live in Bavaria, Germany). Sizing of the rough sawn lumber is done by handtools, only curves are prepared by a power jigsaw and finished with...
  7. redwood bench

    Well here she is in all her glory. LOL. I think I have opted to just leave it natural for now. It seems to be darkening and giving itself a nice patina. I don't want it to grey so I may try to apply something on it. I read in Fine Woodworking that it's okay to apply pure tung oil to help...
  8. Zen Garden Bench

    As Zen and Christian as it gets: something useful comes out of the rejected. On Father's Day weekend I asked my son (who is with me every other weekend) what he would like to do and he said "Dad, let's build something." I had some leftover pressure treated lumber from an old deck project so we...
  9. A Bench for a friend

    I was visiting with a friend of mine one afternoon. His Dad passed away a short time ago and I asked how he was doing with it. He put a smile on his face and said he was doing alright. He enjoyed visiting his Dad's grave site in a near by cemetery. He only wished there a place to sit down...
  10. Cedar garden bench for wedding gift

    Cedar "garden" bench I built for my brothers wedding. I had been hemming and hawing up until the last minute ( 5 days before the wedding) about what I should give as a gift. They asked for either items made personally by the guests or donations to go towards the building of their new home. I...
  11. Yellawood Garden Bench

    Here is the garden bench I built for my wife on mothers day (yeah a little late on posting this). It is made of standard pressure treated home center lumber. I built it in a single day using nothing more than my miter saw and a cordless drill/driver. It went together very easily and is quite...
  12. Small garden bench

    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...
  13. Garden Bench

    This little garden bench was 7 years in the making. My step-mother showed me a photo of this garden bench from a magazine and asked me if I could build it for her. I gladly told her I would make it. I finally built it this week and delivered it to her yesterday. She was extremely happy with...
  14. Enderle Garden Bench

    This is my entry for the garden bench. Not very pretty, but comfortable and durable.
  15. Cypress Garden Bench

    This is a cypress garden bench I am finishing up now for my wife. All frame components and back slats are mortise and tenon. Since I dont know how to make a tenon with a curving shoulder, the top of the back slats use a floating tenon. The first few joints were made the traditional way with hand...
  16. White Fir Garden Bench

    Made of bug riddled White Fir Salvage Logs this wood is easy to work with and has the antique look that many furniture builders try to replicate. This is the real thing. It was about a four hour project including surface planing and assembling with 1/4" crown staples and glue. There are no bugs...
  17. Rustic Cedar Love Seat!

    My neighbor at the lake, picked up some short pieces of cedar left by the loggers, because they only take 100" pieces. I made a few benches out of them, & this is our favorite. I used my Logman Tenon Maker on this Project. Check this link out, because it has a great demo.

  19. Garden Bench Greene and Greene inspired

    My garden bench, design inspired by the Greene and Greene, Blacker house hall bench. Reclaimed Oregon (Douglas Fir) with Jarrah plugs and splines, some oak dowels also. I filled the nail holes with dyed epoxy, I quite like the character provided by the nail holes and knots. Finished with 2...
  20. Garden Bench

    This is yet another Mother's day gift for my mom I just finished a couple weeks ago. This is the biggest and most complex thing I've built so far, I think it surpassed the purple martin house in hours clocked in. (Still don't think I have any birds nesting in that darn house yet) I scanned the...
