In an English country garden

Sometimes a project just happens…

On the way back from a job yesterday, I noticed a couple of old scaffold boards dumped outside a garden in Horsley. After asking the owner if I could have them, I loaded them up into the Morris Traveller (it was a bit of a squeeze).  As soon as I saw them I knew that I would be making a pair of garden benches.  I was able to make almost all of each bench from the boards, I only needed to use a couple of side pieces from a old pallet that I had in the wood shed as stabilising beams.

After a quick sanding to remove the cement residue and a couple of coats of exterior wood stain they were all set for a trip to the Tewkesbury High Street Arts and Crafts markets this weekend. So if you are looking for a pair of benches to enhance your garden pop down between 10am and 4pm on Sunday 21st but be quick I don’t think I will have them for long
