DH recently built this bench from some salvaged wood from the neighbor children's play structure tear down. The plans call it a 3-hour bench, but DH calls it a 1 year 17 hour bench. He effectively kept misplacing the plans for about a year and then since we were using salvaged wood, we had to adapted the plans to the wood we had.
The plans allow for adjusting the slant of the seat and the back before finishing it. So of course we had to have a nice evening sit to decide how we liked it. I've come up with a foot stool plan too, but for now we use the log as a foot stool/table.
I'm very pleased to have this one in the garden and have several more places around the property I'd like a nice wood bench. Those chairs up on the hill will only last so long. I can see us making more, but DH is still in denial about it. Now where did those plans go....?
