Re Garden Seat Project
I built two of the garden seats and donated them to a school (in South Africa). The benches will outside in the playground.
First I marked out the sizes of the pieces and cut them, taking extra care with the angled parts. Then I painted everything with wood primer and left it for a week, after which they were painted again with a good quality paint and left for another few days. Then the benches were assembled and painted a second time. Treated timber was used throughout and considering that the benches have had three coats of paint, they should last for many years.
I consider myself to be a "battler", not good with my hands, and yet I managed to put together quite a stunning pair of benches. It was fun !
My next project is going to be the BBQ picnic table.
