No Bench Left Behind!

A friend of mine asked for help getting his bench back to business... Here is what I received...


Note the three pieces of wood that are just barely hanging on...
This is what we replaced totally with beautiful Oak.
We trimmed them to size (Mr Star and the Grom helped me with this while I worked some other projects...

   
Here is the Grom wondering what in the work he has gotten into.              

After painting the metal a beautiful gray, staining and sealing the oak, Mr Star and I assembled the bench.  Yes, 4 hands were needed, but many hands make light work, right?  Quite a few hours went into the project, but I am very happy with the result.  The color choice really updated the look of the bench.
So now you know... don't pass up on those metal bench pieces on the curb.  ;)
