Here is another recycling idea. That is if you have some old 4×4 not being used anymore and would hate to see it rot on its own. This is Brick House’s Fence Bench, actually a DIY idea which should help you create functional stuff out of old materials which would normally be on their way to the dumps.
The bench should be good for the kitchen or foyers, where long cuts of lumber were reconstructed together with leftover Eames LTR bases to produce a neat looking bench which should offer varied use.
Screws, metal straps, teak oil and a sander put the seater together with ease. The sanding and dying processes let on a dark, mahogany finish.
