This primitive bench is made from a barn my wife and I tore down on some family property. The barn was over 100 years old. The bench is 42” long, 18” high and 10” wide. The side pieces are 5” high. I hand planed the bench top and left the plane marks in the finished bench. For the finish, I put two coats of BLO, sanding in between coats.
It is kinda hard to see in the pictures, but I left the insides of the legs weathered so people can see that it was old barn wood. The wood covered by the weathering is beautiful. I think I’ll make a few more of these for other family members.
