These were something my mom found and after a little googling they’re typically glued with construction adhesives. I was ordering what everyone thought as I have ready access to block and landscape timbers as the boss is about to buy a hundred plus blocks and a bunch of landscape timbers. Is it atrocious? Bad idea for some reason I haven’t foreseen? Free benches except glue that aren’t hideous (at least to my eye) sounds pretty good but wanted other input.
