Sitting bench from dumpster material


I drive a roll off dumpster truck. I found a discarded sample of oak butcher block countertop in a dumpster. To that I added a pressure treated post that held up a building permit box, and a scrap of pine closet shelf board, and made a sitting bench. All it cost me was a little glue and finish. The legs are attached with through tenons, and the stretchers are dadoed into the legs. Finished with Danish oil.

What a beautiful resurrection!
