It has gorgeous, handcrafted contours, and is overbuilt with our incredible California redwood to ensure it keeps its shape, and look, for many years to come.

Sizes of the Ti Amo Bench range from 3 feet to 8 feet, and can seat up to 5 adults comfortably at its biggest size.

To help reduce environmental impact, we use only restoration forestry timber, and absolutely no plastics or synthetics of any kind.

Would you like to add a personal engraved message to your furniture?
Select "Custom Engraving" under Advanced Options. The engraving size we normally use translates to about 14 characters per foot. The default color for lettering is black. If you prefer a different color, let us know. There will be a small charge for changing the font color.
We will center the engraving on the top board of the backrest or the front of the seat trim of a backless bench unless you specify elsewhere. Please let us know your instructions on placement and line break(s) – if not specified, they will be placed at the shop's discretion.
If you'd like a particular font style, please send a Word or PDF document with the font, spacing, and the exact wording and punctuation you’d like. We will trace your document directly onto the wood. Send it to [email protected].
If you are undecided on your engraving message, and would prefer to send it after you place your order, just let us know in the comment box so we know to expect it later. Due to limitations of the engraving tool (we cut ¼” wide and ¼” deep into the wood), we may not be able do certain fonts and will let you know if there is an issue.
MEMORIAL PLAQUE INLAY
If you plan a plaque for your bench, we can inlay it for you at no extra charge. We don't order or make plaques. Once your plaque is made, ship it to Forever Redwood at 33800 Annapolis Rd., Annapolis, CA 95412. A local engraver can assist you with the Plaque details. If you cannot find a local engraver, we recommend the following engraver:
Jay’s Engraving & Rubber Stamp Co. Attention: Ms. Janet Gossage 3185 Cleveland Avenue Santa Rosa, CA 95403 707 542 3873 www.jaysengraving.com
Be sure to let us know in the comments box that you will be sending a plaque for inlaying so we know to hold your bench until the plaque arrives. We will inlay your plaque in the center of the top backrest board, unless otherwise specified. If placed in this location, the plaque can be up to 3" H and any width you like. If there is no backrest (backless bench), we will place the plaque on the front trim piece of the seat unless you specify where you'd like the plaque placed.
The board is 4 3/4" but has a 1" notch to attach the slats, so the space to place a plaque is 3 3/4" as shown below. We recommend the plaques to be up to 3" to avoid issues with the edges.
A popular and less expensive way to place a long lasting message on a bench or other piece of furniture is to have us engrave the message directly onto the wood (see Custom Engraving for more information).

Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesnt hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you dont have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If youd like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish
