GOVERNMENT STYLE PARK BENCH

Alright This customer stopped

by with this 
naked metal bench, badly in need of wood.
 Now the reason I call this a Government style bench 
is usually our money is no object for them to spend
and most people couldn't afford a bench of this nature.
This customer found it at a yard sale for a very good price
and wire brushed it and gave it a good coat of paint.
It was decided Southern Cherry was the wood of choice
and would go well with the bench frame color.
I cut and processed the 21 Cherry slats and he picked them up
for the clear coat, this was done to save money.
 when brought them back he also supplied the fasteners which was
 84 bolts washers and nuts, YIKES,
That was a lot of hole drilling.
Anyway it turned out well and become a bench anyone would be proud 
to own.
Don't forget to click on the photo to enlarge.

  1. Robert, I'm the guy you have been milling Cherry logs for. I'm wondering if I can send you pictures of the tree I believe is a Laurel Oak. I intend to drop it and bring it to you t0 mill if you confirm it is a Laurel. How can I send the pictures? Do you have an email address?----Ralph----horseman@horsemanspress.com
