Ana's benches are soo addictive - I had to try my hands at this one! It is meant for the porch on the new house to be built sometime next (?) year. I must say, I didn't quite manage to get accurate cut-outs with the jig saw, but the design is quite forgiving. The timber is Cypress Pine - an Australian native - sold as fence pickets in the convenient size of 65mmx20mm. I love the grain and variation in colors, ranging from chocolate to blond, and think it is totally underrated. The is top made from 5 planks, so a little wider than the original plans.
