6'L X 3'W X 36"T. Seats 10. 6 small seats & two 3' benches. All made from a bunch of boards a Friend gave me. They came out of a pole barn on his place. The boards were used to define horse stalls.

   The only difference between a novice and a pro is the pro knows how to hide their mistakes better.

I'm almost a pro then!! :lol: :lol:

 

I'm just a casual hobby woodworker. No need to get carried away with it & have it become work.

I certainly enjoy seeing recycled old lumber made into such nice furniture, Glen. I really like the finish you end up with, too. Just enough of the rough cut left and the ( varnish?) finish looks somewhat antique that compliments the project. You are better than you realize.

Thank You OH!! Everything has 4 coats of gloss In/Outdoor Spar Urethane. It builds nicely & leaves a glass smooth finish after sanding with 1500/1800/2000,, I think,, MicroMesh. There are some high & low spots since the finish doesn't fill the low spots. But the surface is glass smooth!!

 

I have yet to retrieve the other load of this size.

Well I'm certainly impressed, very nice stuff! 

 

Now you just need to combine two hobbies and start making custom wood rifle stocks.  :D

Did you sign and date that fine work, Glen?  If not, is not too late to sign underneath.

I never thought of doing the new penny idea, is really good.
