both of these benches are made from the same type of driftwood with the grey taken off one and one left natural. The tops are fir from cape blanco on the southern oregon coast and the legs are dead standing madrone from the forest behind my house. The madrone dies because the rest of the forest out grew it and it lost the light. fun wood to work with because it is spalted so every piece has a different look.

Well, you’ve created useful benches from drifted wood instead puting them in fire. I like the idea and the way you put them together.
