Bench to beauty

I was visiting a friend in Golden, CO, when I passed a house in her neighborhood that was seemingly getting rid of the stuff, you know free stuff by the road, well I noticed this bench on the porch.  Knocked on the door and asked if they by chance wanted to get rid of this bench...... $5 later, it was in the back of my truck.  



Well, this bench having been outside in CO, for I don't know how long was so dry rotted that I can't believe I saved it, thou plenty of times I was contemplating fire pit..

After months of starting then stopping work on it, I got serious.

I used one whole bottle of Gorilla Glue to fix and fill all the cracks.  Sanded, stained with a gorgeous cherry stain and polyurethane the bench back to beauty.

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting!
