Another bench built for my sister’s wedding. In total I made 17 new benches and used 3 that I already had on hand and also had some big planks sat on straw bales as extra seating. It was such a blast making all of these and also a great opportunity to make a dent in the pile of live edge slabs I had been accumulating for quite some time. The legs on this bench are just a big chunk of firewood that I set on the sawmill and cut into 4” thick blocks. The top is 6/4” thick, 12-14” wide, and 8’long. Everything is doweled and glued together. I used a clear-coat Minwax Helmsman Spar-Urethane for finish as I have had really good luck with its UV protection keeping the reds and purples in cedar from fading.
