With a spell of nice weather predicted I was given the task of making a comfortable bench for us to relax on after work and at the weekend. I had a supply of scaffold boards lying around for a future project but decided to use a couple on the bench. Roughly basing the dimensions on a sofa of ours I set to work cutting, angling and trimming the boards. A few hours later the bench was done!
We both really liked the angle grinded slits on some of the boards so I kept those visible as a feature and a nod to the scaffold boards previous life. The addition of the scaffold board end from one of the boards we used gave the bench a nice splash of colour.
