Customer saw this at a hotel when they went on vacation and gave me a picture. The seats were cut from cedar logs. Added a few more pictures do to a number of requests. Any questions let me know. Happy to help.

You don’t have to worry about people trying to steal your patio furniture!

I really like both the table and the log seats.

The table is beautiful and I love the seats. What finish did you use on the table and seats, if any? I don’t know anything about tiger wood, what’s it like to work with? I would also love to see a few pictures of the table joinery. Thanks for sharing.

I used tiger wood because of its’ ability to stand up in the elements. With care it should last at least 20 yrs. It is a very hard wood that is very high in silica so it will dull your blades very fast. Very similar to teak in that aspect. I use a Cabot Clear water proof finish once a year before the summer season starts. It seems to work pretty well. the seats are cedar. I cut them in the way that the tree rings are horizontal and not resting on the ground. That should slow down the transfer of water into the wood. Your just have to start with large enough diameter logs.
