This is my first year doing wooding. I had to do my deck this past summer and could not get anyone to do it so I took it on myself. After finishing it, it looked like something was missing. So I got some plans and thought I would give it a shot. This is the garden bench I made for it and I have to say it turned out not to bad. It was a fun and learning experience for me. I have to make the chairs and tables now to have a matching set. The best thing is I got thumbs up from the wife too. I think I got hooked!
