Joe cut the wood with his saw.
We painted it green to match our front door...hopefully we will paint our back door the same color too! We painted the pieces separately before we put the bench together so we could be sure to reach every nook and cranny.
Using wood glue and screws, Joe put it all together....And it looks like this!
In action at Evelyn's Baptism Reception...I promise you can sit on it:)
