Who is Dawn and why’d you take her redwood? ;-}

That’s a really pretty bench; even before I looked at the closeups I liked it.
After seeing the closeups, I really like it! Well done.

Thanks guys!

The butterflys are purpleheart and the wedges are a from a chunk of burl of unknown origin. No finish. Just letting it weather naturally.
