One of our club members donated the wood for five new benches and some club members put them together and put on the finish. It's nice to have new ones.

The benches got a mention in Dave Gee's safety column in the September 2022 issue of Model Aviation News.

He told me he had over 600 requests for the plans so far. Glad to know that people like them and are building them.

I got Chesapeake Bay Radio Control to use that design many years ago. We are very happy with them.
Thanks for a great design

I think you posted here by mistake. What you posted has nothing to do with the subject of this thread.
