Handmade garden bench

Posted on June 18, 2010

I like woodworking, it's my small hobby which helps to get rest from brainwork. I always wanted to make a classic Oxford English bench for my garden. Weeks of work on spare time and here is the final result:

My garden bench

Originally it should be made from cedar, redwood, cypress or oak, but I don't have these materials, so I made it from pine. It doesn't look as good as cedar, but still is fine enough. If you also like woodworking, you can download a project plan (pdf) and make a similar bench for yourself.
