Garden Bench

Postby orin stepanek » Wed Aug 30, 2017 2:40 am

Good friends of ours were moving and had this garden bench that had weathered so much that the wood was rotted out; and they gave it to us! So I restored it and though it is probably the last project that I will undertake; I think it turned out wonderful! I painted the wrought iron and replaced all the wood! :D

The group is cognate with bank (n.2) "natural earthen incline beside a body of water," and perhaps the original notion is "man-made earthwork used as a seat." Used from late 14c. of a merchant's table. From c. 1300 in reference to the seat where judges sat in court, hence, by metonymy, "judges collectively, office of a judge." Hence also bencher "senior member of an inn of court" (1580s).>>

It still works good! I admit it is a little hard to read though! Like me it's old! :?
