The whole end of this lovely garden was overgrown and was an eyesore, with ivy climbing high up into the tree and a compost area obscuring what would otherwise be a lovely garden. Two friends and I have been working to clear the site and we thought a tree bench would be great there as a feature and for us to enjoy our coffee breaks.
Quite a complicated beast . . being made in my back garden. The decking boards are being delivered tomorrow and I shall then be able to build the decking and the five seat backs which I shall dowel together. I have a great new machine which will be very useful for this and all my furture building projects.
Now the weather is improving I am able to resume progress and hope to finish it and transport it to site by the end of the month, ready for their annual open day.
I met several design and construction problems along the line, which I am pleased I managed to solve and all I need now is time, and this seems a very valuable commodity these days.
The tree bench should be very nice when finished around this tree.
I hope to have more news on progress soon.
