Our most recent project involves sprucing up our client’s backyard with this custom made cedar bench to wrap around their beautiful ash tree.

These are the plans for this particular tree. You can make adjustments to the measurements depending on the circumference of your own tree bench.

Here’s an Photoshopped image of how our client’s backyard will look with the new tree bench and patio installed. The patio will be build with irregular flagstones, and the bench will be built with 2×4 Cedar. Paperstone will make up the small drink tables, which will be mounted on four of the corners of the bench.
