Bench looks like standard issue comfy, for inmates. Maybe you should snap a pic or two and send them to Jackson State, they may order some!

I am kind of curious what your going to make out of the Bed. I don't think I have ever seen a pickup bed used as a indoor bed before. Would be cool if you picked the right years and gave it a sweet paint job. Just think you could have a 6 foot organizer under the mattress that would pull out and so on.

OK enough bsing. Great job at recycling using stuff from around. Looks good and is totally different which gets some cool points with me. Like that you kept the original color. You might want to shoot some clear over it though so people using it don't get rust on there back.

It does not look totally finished yet(no stain) he could easily toss some foam on top of the seat and wrap it in some heavy pleather from a local fabric store then staple it down for a finished look. May want to drill a few holes under the tailgate behind the padding for water to drain into.

I like it. I think it would look cool if you gave the wood a distressed look.

I like the clear coat idea, she is making some type of padding. It has a sticker on it from Quality Auto Sales Inc. Joneboro Arkansas.
