Rustic Book-Matched Spalted Pecan Bench

This is a commission off my website. It is a 60 inch bench utilizing two bookmatched pecan slabs 2 inches thick with spalting in the sapwood but leaving half the pink heartwood in. Natural edge on both sides.
Legs are from native cedar or Juniper Ashe, that are hand-traced and hand mortised one inch deep into seat, Titebond 2 backed up with 2.5 inch Kreg screws.

Is it me or can ya’ll see the Wood Spirit in the grain :) hehe…who is that Gandalf’s cuzzin…Crap..I need a vacation….Oh well, Xmas is coming :) Can’t wait….

A great looking bench. A nice job on the visualization and construction.
