Anyone that saws their own logs knows what they feel like when hitting steel. Blade is useless. Normally if you try to keep going you get crooked, crappy cuts. On this log, I finished the cut and realized that it stayed a straight cut. So I turned red neck and finished the log. Very slow with a really dull blade, but the blade did the entire log without wavering. It of course was retired after that log.
You can punch the nails you see out, but I still won’t run them through a planer in case I missed something. So they were relegated to bench status with hand power planer and sanding. I left the nails in this one. They aren’t sticking up to catch anyone. Can I get suggestions if this is OK or wrong? The legs are poplar. It’s 34 inches tall, 66 inches long and 24 inches deep. I will finish the finish today. 7 coats of Spar Urethane.
Here’s the replacement for the Elm bench that sold.
Thanks for reading and all comments are welcome
