I bought 2 boards to replace rotten ones on a garden bench. I ripped each board down the middle and cut them in 4’ lengths. The antique bench looks great and should last for a long time with no painting or maintenance.
Very nice finish - both texture and color. I cut the 1x6 lengthwise to make several 1x2 slats, so each had one or two 1-in edges without the laminate textured top. But they worked great for my project.
