I had a couple of fir slabs lying around that were shouting to me “Make a bench out of us.” So I fired them Yakisugi style with a tiger torch, top coated with tung oil, used some U bolts to attach them to the spokes of the old farm wheels. Chocked the wheels with some rocks and now my slabs are happy.

This bench is screaming “sawmill” to me! Looks great—and looks like it belongs at an old sawmill, in front of a log cabin, where people sit and take in the action!

Nice quick build bench, wheels look like they are from a horse drawen mower.

This is very creative and makes a nice bench.
