A recent project-A tree seat around a large plane tree in County Kilkenny,Ireland.Made from a dead Californian redwood tree from the same property.No CNC here,just standard workshop tools and a bit of grade school math.And Sketchup.Nice when craft meets raw nature.They kind of set each other off,do you think

Beautiful work Paul. Striking bench around a magnificent tree. A real invitation to rest in it’s cordial presence.

Ditto on well done and that was no easy job no matter what you say. It’s perfect for that amazing tree.

I’ve got to agree with all here. A really great looking piece. It’s as if it was meant to be.

That is very creative and makes a nice accent to a yard or garden. Nice work and design.
