Default Plans for a park bench around a tree

I am looking for plans to build a bench around a large Oak tree in the middle of a flower garden. Searching Google has turned up a number of photos but no "plans". All suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance. http://www.routerforums.com/images/smilies/moil.gif

Pentagon, hexagon, octagon?
I have seen them, and sat on one but didn't look under the seat.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I'm open on the design at this point. I've been asked to assist a friend in the construction of the same and all he knows is that "my wife wants one". Sounds like a problem in the making.

Thanks in advance.

Jon remember that trees get fatter. You also need to be able to get under occasionally.
Maybe two semi circles snugged up to each other? You'd be able to separate the two pieces for maintenance.

Good points. Assuming this actually becomes a project I'll keep that in mind.
