Rustic X Bench

Submitted by Linda7 on Thu, 03/06/2014 - 14:52

I built this bench for my son and daughter-in-law for their front porch. The plans came from The Handbuilt Home, and I followed them exactly. My daughter-in-law thought it would be cool to burn their brand onto the seat, which added a very personal touch, I think. Very happy with the way it turned out. Thanks for the easy-to-follow plans, Ana!
