One of my wife's sisters left this with me a couple of years ago, to do whatever I wanted. After walking around it and moving it every time I wanted to get something from that area, I finally decided to start working on it. It has lots of ornate casting in the back panel of sunflowers and vines, plus castings in the side legs. It's rusting over some, so I'll be sandblasting with an attachment to my pressure washer.

I got some cypress from Steve Wall Lumber this summer that I've milled to 2.5" wide.

I redid a similar metal bench for a friend of mine several years ago. We also used cypress for the slats. His bench had several slats across the entire back. We used stainless steel bolts etc to fasten the slats to the steel frame.
