So I recently finished making this bench. All from scrap lumber, made the legs. Today was the day- I finally took the bench home. It started out great anyways because this morning I got my SAT score, 1940!! So this has been an amazing day. I put the bench clamp on, and stole all the lumber I could in an hour, because my job was about to start and I had to hurry. Anyways, Mr.Mann, my teacher, drives my bench and a boat load of the schools wood to my house, tells me to count the board feet by myself and tell him later (such a rush he didnt even charge me yet haha). And I had the cream of the litter because I’m one of his favorites. So right now, I have 46.41 Bf of highly figured maple, 16.55Bf of pine, 18Bf of beech and 9.68Bf of bloodwood, my favorite wood because it smells amazing when you cut it. Yup, im satisfied :P
