I made this bench for my son and daughter-in-law to be for their wedding. Guests will be invited to write their good wishes on the seat, and the bench will be sealed with a coat or two of polyurethane. I wanted to do something different for them since the wedding is in their backyard and has a 'home country' feel. Their names and wedding date were burned into small pallet slats using a craft wood burner. The bench was also a project for our local county fair, where, as you can see, it was awarded a Best in Show ribbon.
