Gallery: Opepe Hardwood Garden Bench
This is a garden bench for my garden in Argyll, Scotland. It is inspired by a visit the the wonderful Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, California. They have many benches of this type throughout the garden, normally made of redwood.
My bench is made of opepe which is a tropical hardwood from Africa. I was able to get small quantities of this wood as it is used as a marine hardwood locally.
