A bench for a friend.
An old boss of mine is turning 60 soon. It’s been 10 years since I have worked for him and we have randomly kept in touch over the years. He’s a great guy and taught me many things over the time we have known each other. A few years back his shop burned to the ground. Devastating to say the least. We visited him after and he let my wife and I salvage a few boards out of the yard that survived. Now it’s time to drop a gift off to him this weekend to show my appreciation.
Since I’m not so good with the words, I’ll just share some of the build photos.
- Live Edge Fir Bench (Handhewn more so than live edge)
- 2 1/2” thick slab
- 16 1/2” wide 40” long 18” tall
-Yeti Bottle opener with magnet behind bow tie/butterfly
As always, thanks for looking and all of the inspiration, fellow lumber jocks.
