Default New garden bench

I bought two metal ends for a bench a year ago at an auction for 3. They sat in the shed for a year while I thought many times 'I must get some wood for that bench'. I was at the re-cycling centre the other day and there in the timber re-cycling were three lengths of wood from a bed--perfect. Brought them home, cut them to 3ft lengths, put it all together, sanded, stained and varnished and Hey Presto--a lovely little bench for the princely sum of 3. Happy Days!!

Absolutely. I have two of them myself so hopefully will get started on that next. Amazing how often garden furniture is discarded at the end of the season when a quick upcycle could have it ready for next year. Don't forget to post phtos when you do it. I usually forge cthe before!!

Default recycling centre

Hi Felix, the recycling centre is at Golden Island behind Tesco. you are not actually supposed to take stuff but they usually turn a blind eye. Was there today and took a few pieces from the timber recycling to chop up for firewood. Great for getting the fire started!
