Anyone that knows me knows I don’t like sitting around. Mornings have been slow so I decided to be productive. The legs are poplar that wasn’t very interesting. The Elm slab had some interesting things that I felt looked like a bench. Finished with oil based poly. It’s 63 inches long and 32 inches tall.

First 2 pictures are with finish and the other 3 are without.

Thanks for reading and all comments are welcome.

You did that bench at the campground, DURING the show? You continue to amaze and impress, Monte.

Wow, fantastic. How stable is it? I’m sure you wouldn’t build something that would fall over but it looks somewhat unstable at the base. Great job!

Smart Monte, letting them see you do some work. Might get some orders that way. Nice bench.

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.
