Tailgate Bench

When I was younger my grandpa died of a heart attack. He was a huge International fan, and loved International pick-ups. I found this International tailgate in a junkyard and it reminded me a lot about him. With a little help from my girlfriend we came up with the idea to make it into a tailgate bench, that way I had something that I could look at that would always remind me of him. At the time of this project a good friend of mine was taking down a corn crib that he had on his property and let me use barn wood and beams to construct my bench. The finishing touches of the front bumper and old Iowa license plate really brought together the bench.
