And finnaly the fourth bench, unfinished because it still needs stain and varnish, but all the wood work is done.
It´s an hybrid of vertical and horizontal planks, as seen from above.
This one was the most difficult to build, but I think the result is nice.

Sorry for the plastic pots, folks, many trees are still in ttraining.
I will repot 15 or 20 next spring, so the whole setup will look nicer.
Thanks for the comments!

Nice work Frank - get some teak oil on that wood though!

Already done, but I use a mixture of linseed oil and turpentine, a tric from my grandfather, works great, but only to use outdoors.

Very cool place Clicio! I see you're investing on some new raintrees there! Same here, I'm loving it.

We had a few frost nights already here on South (~3ºC) and some BRTs are on under the porch, some don't, but they're quite well so far, I love the little greenhouse tho. First winter with them.

Got any Dumosum/Tenuiflorum variaty? I managed to get some seeds but they're a bit harder to germinate when compaired to Tortum.
Got 3 of them from last spring, and I'm kind of liking it more than the Tortum... =P, still have 10 more seeds to try again this year, planning to have one on the ground as a future source of seeds =P

Thanks, @Albas
Yes, I had a good one (Tenuiflorum) but I gave it away to a friend. Now I got a sapling and will train it next year.
Thanks for the input!

That's a superb finish on that stained/varnished bench - what a lovely warm colour!I messed up a bit on the spacing of the slats on my homemade benches - the gaps rather dictate how far forward / back my pots have to go, also the angle that they are presented at. I may get around to modifying them sometime this summer. .I do like the poles that you have some of your collection on - this one looks like you can even practice your martial arts whilst trimming your bonsai...
