But I would like it to keep some of the old character and color difference
after all there are a lot of holes in the boards.
I will have to apply some kind of stain to protect the wood.
Obviously the top boards are not yet attached to the base,
I ran out of screws, and they will not be delivered for a few more days.
I am using a mix of boards: 2x6, 2x4 and 2x8.
I think it makes it more interesting, and also that is what I could get out of the benches!
