Entrance bench made from cedar roots and cedar slab seat, I love trying to get a good flow of lines. I could only go so deep on the seat but I had a lot of wall space to play with.

Thanks for lookin
Jeffro

That’s a beautiful bench! Very artistic and a great use of natural shapes.

I think this is one of my favorites so far. It’s not as complex as some of the others, but the basic shape with embellishments makes it more “familiar” visually. The fact that it also acts as a wall decoration is a big plus. I could see this in a lot of different environments.

Really nice.

You have a great eye for finding interesting wood, and the artistic ability to put it together, I keep trying,
but come up short of what I want. Thank you for sharing and inspiring us.

Your work always just plain makes me feel good!
...you need to share some sanding tips!
-do you mean deep into the back edge of the seat, or the depth of the seat itself?
I’ve had the first issue a couple of times lately; in one case, i really wanted the back to be more connected.
