Arky, I like doing the benches too, and when I get some time, I'm going to make a bunch of them. They actually bring in some good $$. I usuallly use a 2 3/4" tenon on the bigger legs like this one, then I run a diagonal peg through the tennon into the mortise . This stops any twisting that may occur.




And awhile back I made a joke about this being a rustic chair ;D


well last weekend, my wife had some business to take care of across the river so the kids and I taged along. Then I went to see this guy who makes stuff similar to what  I do. He has a retail shop that his wife runs, and they do quite well. I saw a stool similar to the one I posted ???... Yes a 14" round about 16" tall sitting in his store with a $119 price tag. ::) ??? :D. His wife said the first weekend they put them in there they sold 4 of them.  8)

 I like Rustic also.

  Sorry FDH but the over all finish on that seat is to smooh to be called rustic.   You will have to start another thread.   Why if grits were slopped on that seat they would just slip off unto the floor and be wasted.  What a shame!   Nice seat though.

  No idea what the finish is. The chair was in a Sawmill Office I found, out on the Puntarenas Peninsula. Nice chainsaw work, EH ???

ARKANSAWYER that's a great looking bench and the little fence idea is a winner.
solodan your bench is a wonderful piece of work.
FDH your chair is a chainsaw masterpiece!

This is a little more rustic than the other benches shown here. It only took about twenty minutes to make out of cottonwood slabs. I used a chainsaw, hammer, and a few nails. I built it to take to a party a friend was putting on. I really expected it would end up on the bonfire before the night was over. People went nuts over it, go figure, I had requests to make a dozen of them.

In case anyone is interested it's two chainsaws long and one bar length tall, cut to fit at assembly.
If I can get $50 :o for them I just might see how many I can sell. For that price, deck screws and some finish on the seat seems reasonable.

I was wondering the same thing as Furby, cause I used two different saws today, one had a 42" bar and the other had a 12" bar. ???  I'm glad we got that all cleared up, now Furby won't have to make a 12 foot bench , that's 6 feet tall. ;)  That is a great idea for a bench JCam, I think that is a great example of utilizing the log to it's fullest.  :)

The guy that helped me do my front roof stopped today to see if I had any roof/leak issues.  Got out of truck took one look at the benches and said how much.  I said $50, he said sold, my wife is gonna love it, did you know the granite ones are almost $1000. :o :o

We have sold 5 or 6 pickup loads of cedar sawdust for people to mulch flower beds. The first person to buy any had just spent $1800.00 on roses and said that cedar sawdust would keep aphids away as well as other bugs that bug roses. I guess after spending that much I would want to protect my investment too. A pet store buys the chips from when we plane cedar boards for bedding for ... rodents. ::)at least thats what I call them. But if cash is in hand dont argue. :D We are starting to compost cottonwood sawdust to sell to the flower people too. Should have plenty by spring. Maybe not what you other guys are doing but every bit helps the bottom line in a small operation.
