I call it the Widow Bench. I used a left over piece of Sycamore from a bar top I had built earlier. The legs are made from a dyed maple, first they were dyed red then distressed and then stained grey and finished with clear poly spray on.

That’s a super slick project. Very creative.

How’d you carve the seat?

Doc, There has been a little twist in the slab but not much she still sits flats.

Rusty, I used a grinder to get it close them a rotax with a sponge pad to finish it off.

That’s an amazing looking bench—and it looks like it’s gonna crawl off somewhere!
