Been working on a little garden bench for my patio in the backyard - finally had some time Sunday to devote to it - hoping to finish it this weekend (4 day weekend!!) - only have the seat and the arms left to attach.

Started with a pile of cedar - Spanish and western. Progress was slow at first - built the base and it sat for a few weeks.

Had most of the day Sunday to work on it - the majority of the time was cutting the back slats and lining them up then screwing them to the back support. Nothing fancy going on here but she feels real sturdy. Can't wait to finish it up then sit down and take a load off!

Thanks to everyone for their comments!

I put the "floorboards" and arm rests on it - still have some sanding/shaping to do on a few parts but it's all assembled and actually pretty comfortable - although I may see if my wife will make some custom seat cushions for it.

I'm leaning towards trying some Australian Timber Oil for the finish - will try some test pieces to see how it looks.
