hopefully, this is reclaimed wood ( not a fresh piece taken from the ground ) and not a beavers habitat.
make sure to check for : splinters, woodpeckers, and any other surprises.
does look rather freshly cut?
p.s. friends of mind have gone to auto junk yards, and pulled the front/back bench seats, refurbished and made great sofas for indoor/outdoor use. same with front passenger seats, made indoor/outdoor seating. now that’s recycling!
