I am considering building an outdoor bench similar to the one shown in the attached photo. Currently considering either cypress or red cedar but am open to other options. I believe I can get cedar through a local sawmill but am curious if anyone has a recommendations based on workability, strength, weather durability, etc. I plan to leave the bench unfinished to weather naturally. Within a factor of 2X on material cost relative to cedar what say you? Thanx in advance.
