This bench was designed by American Metals as a retirement gift for the owner. Each element has a personal meaning to him and his employees. The arm rests are in the shape of an "R", which stands for the family's business name, Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. The backrest is in the shape of his favorite tree, a Monterey cypress tree, with the words "God, Family, Country" inscribed in it. Completing this bench, is a rustic faux wood seating surface with a Celtic cross, welded in the center.
