First Bench
« on: March 28, 2017, 11:17:38 PM »


This is my first benc project cut from some pine logs given to me by a school we are remodeling. I cut the logs on my WM 130 and kiln dried. I am donating the bench back to the school. The legs were painted red as that is the school color

Well done!  I like the look of knotty pine.

Great looking benches for sure. The best use for those gnarly, knotty slabs. Great work.

You're going to have to show us more pictures.  :o
 That looks great!  How did you make the legs?

Take steps to save steps.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Yellow I bought the legs online from a site called Etsy. I guess it like eBay or amazon. They were a bit pricey at 115 a pair but I don't have time to build them and am back logged on projects. This is the only other picture I have of finished project. Man do you chase your tail on a two sided epoxy project. I need to find some non self leveling

I love it.  Very nice job on the bench.  It is amazing how good gnarly pine turns out.
