A present to someones parents. 4’ long bench with custom calligraphy done by my Mother in Law, Daria Varner. Soft Maple seat, back, & butterflies & cherry supports. Spar urethane finish. Then JFF I included some freshly sawm 4X24X8’ & 9’ slabs waithin for their turn in the kiln. These can be resawn into several bookmatched sets! & could be for sale.

I love the design but the urethane doesnt look like it did anything to the wood. is it bad lighting or just a real light finsh??? other then that i like it alot.
