      I agree. Not just another bench, that is Superb ;D. I do not think I have used that word on here before, but that is very nice, and what makes it special is that it sounds like it come from the heart. A very nice gift indeed.

With all due respect, that's not "just another" bench! That is outstanding!! A real heirloom.

They may get a few gifts but I am certain none will be more meaningful.  What a cool idea and great execution!  Heirloom is right!  Great pics !
