Here are photos of my now 95 percent complete timber bench seat made from treated timber sleepers,which i dressed (in part myself).
It measures 1800(L) 400(W) made from 3x 2400x200x50 treated pine sleepers.
Fantastic project @KevinMall. Your bench is sure to inspire other community members as such a seamless design could look at place in any backyard.
May I ask about what tools you used, and for more details on the construction process? I’m sure more information would be of interest to members who wish to build something similar.
Thank you for posting your project and well-done on such a great design.
