This outdoor bench is a truly repurposed item that has a unique story with many years of memories behind it. The redwood used to make this bench - in it's entirety - was once a children's playground set. The playgroud set was first disassembled and taken to our workshop. The pieces of the set were planed to the correct thickness. We needed all of the pieces to match so that they could later fit together like a puzzle piece. The boards were then cut, laid out and glued in a specific pattern to achieve the look we were going for. The boards were glued in sections, so it took several days to assemble. The bench was then sanded using a power sander. We treated the bench with Thompson's WaterSeal (Waterproofer Plus Clear Wood Protector).
