This is just two Ash Benches that I did in the spring. I milled the logs from a Ash tree that we had cut for firewood. They are about 8 feet long. I used the logman II tennon maker with this project. I fastened the legs with dowels drove in at an angle. No metal fasteners. I did use a hand plane on the top to smooth them out a little. I have intentions of making a table to go with these. But have to pick the tree out of the woods yet. Thanks for looking…

Agreed CampD! Nice benches! I have a few half logs (shorter though) that I will be putting some legs on as soon as Pennsylvania thaws out a bit. :)

Been wanting to do this for some time. I have some locust I’m cutting up soon. I’m thinking around 4 or 5 feet in length. What angle did you use on the legs? Does it matter within a few degrees either way?
Thanks in advance, BTKS
