The neighbor boy, came over, and was bored. Wanted to know what he could cut down. We cut the rest of this tree down (It was hit by lightning, top broken off). He wanted to help build something, quick, so we just built this bench. He was tickled pink.

Nice simple bench. What kind of wood is it? Every time I see cut wood now, I start thinking about what could be turned out of it. That looks like a nice dark grain wood for a lathe project.
Thanks for sharing….......Jim

Nice and simple! Plus it can double as a Flinstones car. :-)
