last summer my 100 year old oak tree lost a fight with a storm and this is what i have left of it. nothing too special here, just a few cuts with a chainsaw and a little time. Now we have a nice place to sit. Thanks for looking.

Hate to see a 100 year old oak tree go, but what a great way to use what’s left. Perfect setting for the bench. nice job.

Very nice. Gives you a great place to sit and contemplate all the kids that klimed that tree over the years. Now you can climb it the easiest.

Nice yard too.

Very nice! I’ll bet you sit somewhere else, so you can just look at your bench. LOL

GOOD LUCK!!

Fantastic, man! I really like this!

The only furniture type pieces I’ve done where the bark statyed on were from hickory, which holds well. One of my first oak stools was done with the bark left on, and it eventually came off. However, it seemed to keep the wood from drying too fast and splitting. :)

Again, nice work!

I’ve been wanting to get into this style of woodworking for some time. I really like the legs and stetcher. Thanks for the inspiration. BTKS
