So I decided I needed a bench, something I can't afford. So I went to freecycle.org and posted in my two areas, and I had some one give me one. It is all wood that needs a little work. So I started the refurbishing put some nails in to strengthen, and then sanded the whole thing to prep for the stain which went one very nicely. needless to say I have a bench now for the front porch.
