Custom Hickory Live edge Anniversary Bench 50” long With calligraphy by my wife & mother in law.
Its just done with a dark brown sharpie, then covered with 5 coats of Minwax Spar Urethane.
This was such a fine piece we delivered it to Gettysburg just to see the look on the face of the customer. The visual is only 1/2 the beauty! To get the full effect one must run a hand down the super smoothness!
100% Hickory! Hickory Butterflies, supports, seat, back, plugs. Everything except the porcelain coated screws that are covered with hickory plugs.
I have been a little ill with diabetes, but with some changing of meds I am back on the mend & hope to be posting a lot more projects in the near future!!!!
