John, Great design and Great build. They’re both stunning, but the walnut has such an easy flow to it. Beautiful work.

I have slab wood sitting around waiting for a project. I’ll never approach this quality of design and build. Well done.

A very beautiful bench. I love the clean lines showing the wood and grain. Great job!

you’ve given me a big dose of inspiration to go to the shop and create. i wish it was easier to get a hold of natural edge slabs. nice work!

Thank you for the comments.

Vince, the finish is a mixture of spar varnish, BLO, and turpentine. around 6 coats.
