The benches are 5', 7', and 9' long. The seats will be made from 3" cherry stock and is very heavy to work with. Each board is around 100 pounds when rough and the longest bench seat after trimming and cleaning up is around 130 pounds. This was by far the hardest part of the job. I still have a way to go but I am glad to be done with the seats. Below are some shots and videos showing some of that process.
