TBT: Cabin Wood Bench

Hi!  I’ve decided to create a new column here on StateStreetGreen where I will present my past projects.  It won’t be the same format as my DIY column because I won’t be giving step-by-step instructions.  Instead, its just a way to display some of the things I’ve made.  I’m calling this column TBT which stands for “Throw Back Thursday”.  TBT is a popular idea on social media sites- people post old pictures with the hashtag #TBT.
