L shaped garden bench

Somebody on Youtube asked me how I would design an "L" shaped garden bench.  Here is my first idea.  I have a couple of other ideas in my head and I will sketch them out when I have time.

Stained ice chest cooler box update

I put the first coat of spar urethane on the stained cooler box last night and I am very happy with the results. 2 more coats to go!

Staining an ice chest cooler box


I am building a stained ice chest cooler box for a customer. I had some min wax walnut stain that was a little darker than I wanted so I watered it down with some mineral spirits and made the color that I was looking for.
