The Admiral 5-foot Storage Bench will be your best friend in extreme weather conditions. Its ability to resist even the harshest weather as well as most insects will make you willing to store anything in it. You can select a non-glossy, "Clear Coat" finish to delay the weathering process or leave it untreated with the "Natural" option to let the cedar weather naturally to silvery grey patina.
With waterproof glue, epoxy-coated screws, and stainless-steel hinges, the Admiral Storage Bench will far exceed your stringent quality standards. Simple assembly is required.
What is the difference between the natural and clear coat finish?
Over time and with exposure to the outdoor elements, cedar will turn a lovely silver grey color as it ages. If you enjoy the fresh, natural color of cedar and would like your storage bench to weather naturally, you should select the "Natural" finish option.
The "Clear Coat" finish is a non-glossy, linseed oil-based sealer that we apply to the bench's exterior to protect it from the elements and prolong the weathering process. To allow the cedar to breathe and fully retain its natural insect-repelling properties, we leave the inside of the bench untreated, thus the interior of a clear-coated bench will appear slightly lighter than the outside. Clear-coated cedar will assume an attractive pale yellow color as it ages.
About Cedar Wood
Cedar wood is lightweight and resistant to both cracking and moisture rot. The oils of this resilient wood guard against insect attack and decay, and their distinctive aroma acts as a mild insect repellant. This makes cedar a long held choice for protecting delicates, clothing, blankets, and keepsakes.
Another wonderful aspect of cedar is its environmental effect - which is minimal. A renewable resource, cedar wood emits low greenhouse gases. Overall cedar is a fine choice for furniture.
