Hi Everyone! Happy Thursday! I'm still working on my kitchen island in between spending time with my nephew Quinton and the projects we've been working on. I'll share those when we get them done. Today, I wanted to show you the bench I made for my sister-in-law (Quinton's mom). It is made entirely out of cedar from the farm that my grandfather saved. The seat is by far the best piece of cedar I've seen. It's two full inches thick (not the 2" of today that is actually and 1-1/2") and it is 13" wide. To find a piece of cedar like that today would cost you an arm and a leg! So thanks to grandpa for saving it. I have several other pieces that are just as great! Sorry, I get so excited about great pieces of wood.
I would have liked to make it larger, it's only about 36" wide, just large enough to be able to sit down and put your shoes on, but it had to fit in the back of my parents SUV along with all their luggage since my brother's family doesn't live around here. But it's just the right size for the space on their patio by the door.
