My neighbor had to take down an elm last year, I helped a little, so I got some wood, It always works out that way. Most was turned into bowls, but this slab and a couple of branches became a bench. My boy Dan liked it so I gave it to him. I really like the feet at the end of the legs, seems really cool to me. It took quite a while to sand smooth, eventually I will get a hand planer for this sort of thing. I drilled 1 1/2 ” holes under the slab for the legs, then turned 1 1/2” tenons in the branchs on my lathe at least one was very difficult to mount, and seemed dangerous to turn the lathe on.
It is finished with Helmsmans Varathane, mostly the spray.
