Welcome to Lumberjocks. Great looking bench. I love making rustic slab benches. What did you use to slab the log?

Great looking bench. I like the natural curves left in the wood.

Any project with live edge looks great. Whats your plans for the benches when there done. If they are going outside in the weather be sure and seel them up good.
