Pine Liar's Bench

This was made from scrap from a Log Cabin. I made the lettering on the computer and glued the paper to the wood as a guide. Using a Moto-tool I carved out the lettering. Then I spray painted black amd sanded the top paint off leaving the black to accent the lettering. I tried to center the lettering between the knots. Cutting the legs on the Bandsaw gave me my workout for the day…I didn’t need to go to the gym!

Ahhh! Cool project, but one question arises, WHO sits on that bench? Who would want to? Maybe a fisherman??
I do like the looks of the bench!

Rick, the only reason I said “maybe a fisherman” is that I’m a fisherman too!!!;-) Now you know that I’ll not sit on that bench after I’ve gone fishing!? LOL I showed this bench to my wife this morning and she loved it!

The first thing I thought of when I saw this was that would look great sitting outside a tackle shop or near a marina.
