My wife has been complaining that she cannot set in the grass near the flowers and humming birds for her morning coffee so here is the solution. It is made of Bloodwood and I am just going to let it weather naturally.

That's a nice bench, Jim. I'm interested in your decision to let it age naturally. I've read bloodwood is very resistent of insects, but don't know how the elements would affect color, surface texture, splintering, etc. Do you?

Jim, that's a beautiful bench and tables. It looks like it was modeled after Norm's "English Garden Bench" only Norm's wasn't made of Bloodwood.

The bench certainly looks great in that setting, too. Thanks for showing.
