My wife found some driftwood at the beach and thought it would make for a nice bench.
This is what I came up with.
This is a very simple bench but very functional and heavy duty.
The driftwood included a large 8' 4" plank (2" thick and 15 1/2" wide), a couple of 6" logs and an old beat up 1x6 plank.
I simply cut the logs to 15 3/4" length and tied them together with the 1x6. These were fastened to the plank with 4" spikes.
The Thing weighs a ton but makes for a great rustic looking campfire bench.
