Hi, for sale is a project I've had in mind for years and finally made...and it was fun so I plan to make more!
This one is the first though...so, it's, like, super special. :)

The basics: It's a bench, made out of wood, with the backrest made out of an old truck tailgate.

More info: Still a bench made from wood and a tailgate. But the lowdown is that it's a from a 1981 Chevy C10. It was well used and shows it's wear in some dents and rustic charm. I painted it bright red with white lettering and it looks like a guy did it in his garage...because I did. Ergo, it's not show quality paint but it's not meant to be. Please feel free to come see in person but the pics hopefully capture that this isn't a flawless work or art...it's a truck bench! :) This would look great in a garage, man cave or outdoor entertainment area. It definitely has been a great conversation piece in the couple days since I've finished it.
I angled the back and it's surprisingly comfortable to sit on. I have dreams of making custom pads and adding bottle openers and cup holders but I'm starting here.
Paint is exterior type and wood is 4x4s and 2x6s, pressure treated and well constructed.

I'd really rather this be for local pick up but I'll work something out if you really want it shipped. If picking up, it's pretty hefty so bring a truck/large SUV and at least one strong person, I can be your other lifter.

I plan to make more of these so if you have a tailgate already I could make a custom one for you at a reduced price...or I could try and find the gate you'd like and work out a custom price.

More pics upon request and, like I said, feel free to come by and check it out. Have a cold one from my beer fridge as you mull it over.

Thanks
Tom
