Benches.

Recommended Posts

 In the back of the workshop I've had some iron garden seat ends, that I painted a few years ago. Finally decided to do something with them. So some beech beams from a ship I've also had lying around, (The beams not the ship), found their way to a neighbours who's a joiner. There they were cut into strips to make seat slats. I then gave them three coats of yacht varnish. Today I put everything to gether.

 Carol is well pleased as she likes a variety of places to sit.

 

  Next on the list was the bench we have out on the green. It was an old park bench that was given to us some years back. About 20 I think. I'd done it up then, but the years have taken their toll.

That soon ended up like below with the aid of the chainsaw.

 

So it looked like this.

After a couple of hours it is now ready for some paint.

  It could do with three more slats in the seat, but that was all the wood I had. One day it may get some if I come across some suitable wood.
