Sounds like you've gotten sound advice here. Friends gave us this bench earlier this year. It needed a single slat replaced.






The treated slats were quite dry and open-grained. So, I primed it with a thinned coat of grey oil primer, then top-coated with a solid Cabot stain (oil). I use this stain on most of our outdoor wooden furniture because it's so soft and easy to re-coat every few years. No scraping, just light sanding - like my shop!


BTW: The #1 machine for any wood shop is a table saw. Even a portable "bench top" model makes ripping easy. Not to rub salt in the wound, but I picked one for free - roadside - last Summer. It's up at our camp now. Keep your eyes peeled!



All the best,


SJS
