One of my favorites. I have built a lot of benches but this on is the cadillac of comfort. The frame is made of Ash and all mortis and tenon joinery.The seat is a 8/4 natural edge Oak slab ( at 5 feet long it takes at least two to move this beast). I dismantled another store bought bench just for the metal back. Unfinished at this time for a customer’s choice.

Nice bench. How do you get you wood? do you find it already seasoned or do you cut it yourself and let it dry out that way?

I’m generally not a huge fan of rustic furniture, but this is really nice.
