In late August, with the help of the tools found at Sector67, I made another bench!

Bench 2

This one is not delivered up north just yet.

June project

In June, I worked on making a bench.

Bench 1b


I chose the simplest bench pattern out there for some instant gratification; this style is called the Aldo Leopold bench. The parts were acquired from Home Depot’s 70% off rack + my random stash. I used Sector67’s woodworking shop to cut my lumber down to spec.

Total time spent building the thing: 30 minutes.
Total time spent sealing the thing: way more than 30 minutes.
Time spent walking it down a 1/2 mile long, bumpy, overgrown road: I don’t want to talk about it.

It will be interesting to see how well this holds up outdoors.

Someone mentioned that they’re tired of looking at that picture from November AND ps, it’s been nearly five months since I’ve updated this blog. So. Here goes an attempt to get back in the swing of sharing things that I’m working on…. Because there’s been a lot of new stuff going on 🙂

Future project = two wooden benches

I have some sturdy shelves that I never intend to use as shelves. They came with part of the new cabinets in my kitchen. I think that each of these shelves will make an excellent wooden bench top.
