Will do. Thanks he will like that!
He didn't use that tailgate on the truck because it was just too dented up from being a work truck for so long. He wanted to keep it, so he combined his hobbies and came up with this bench. That way he could justify keeping the tailgate. I just love it!

Thanks all! I was proud to show it off. He has made several benches now that are on our deck. We bought a bench years ago, and the wind blew it over and broke it. From that time forward he just makes his own, and they never blow over or break. We have several. I just thought that this idea was fantastic. He actually got the idea from his forum he is on. He just did his a little different from the other guy. By cutting the tailgate to really fit it into the bench where the bench would still be comfy to sit on.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts, 1948-2011 Ford F150, Super Duty & SUV owners community and information source. Covers F100, F-150, F250, Bronco, Ranger, Explorer, Expedition, Lighting, Escape and More They have forums for different ranges of years. Like I said, we have a 48 so he is on that one. If you are into Ford trucks it is the place for you Jeff. They are a very well behaved group of people. He also goes into the jalopy journal forum but, just to warn you, they are not quite so well behaved there.
