Here are the smaller pieces of the heirloom garden furniture I was commissioned to build. Pictures of the captain chairs, bistro table and couch are soon to follow. Thank-you Mike and Helen.

Wow this wood is awesome! What kind of wood is it? I would love to get my hands on some of this wood for my turnings. Nice job on your project.

Those benches look really nice. What finish did you use on them?

Hey, I had to come back and look at this lovely piece of wood and while looking/admiring/drooling over it I noticed a face in the log. I see a man wearing a parka with a big nose, a bushy mustache covered with frost, squinty eyes. Anyone else see this?
