Started with a cedar log and used a chainsaw, sanders and dowels to make this bench. The bench measures 42” X 19” X 13” and weighs about 40 lbs. It’s finished with Danish oil and Howard’s wax. All pieces on It fit flush and tight and the whole bench is plumb and level…..which amazed me! This bench build was a “no hurry order” that is now complete. As always, thanks for the looks and comments.

Wow! That is great. I’m not sure what I like more, the live edges, or the color of the cedar. I like it all. Also the piece you used for the stretcher looks great. Nice job.

Very beautiful. Nicely done. Usually when they say “no hurry” they want it ASAP.
