This is a bench I put together out of found logs. The client wanted something that was pretty much indestructible, heavy (so it couldn’t grow “legs”) and looked good on his log cabin porch. All of it is oak except the slab backrest which is fir. It weighs about 250 lbs. and is bolted together with galvanized lag screws plugged/capped with ash on the seat. I split it with a chainsaw then planed and sanded the surfaces. It’s supposed to get a waterproofing finsh that also protects it from sun greying.
