This is a 1.5” thick slab of Fir that I milled and made into a free-standing bench. It’s 16.5”H x 14”W x 48”W. It’s finished with Cabot Austrailian Timber Oil and paste wax. It’s made with interlocking notches (think Ikea) that allow it bo be free-standing. I did peg the legs to the top just so it could be moved easily. I named it “Palomino” because from the side the edges give the impression of horse hide. I enhanced that a bit by hand rubbing in some white tint. It also has the horse brand of the Philmont Scout Ranch (any scouts out there?).

I apologize for the photos – I’m not the greatest photographer!
