Made from a flake off of a old growth cedar stump, it still had a spring board notch in the back, axe cut from the old days. Ive been looking at this piece for quite awhile probably a couple years, it had a little sweep shape to it so I trimmed it up and hogged it out, I left just enough natural root to show where it all came from, added a couple legs that went with the flow and after a several day sanding session, oiled it up. I was trying to shoot photos of it on the greens and a fella manged to play through lol.

Amazing job! One of the most unique projects I’ve ever seen! How much does it weigh though?

your just having to much fun here, some folks dread going to work, you…...your probably trying to find ways to light up the bush so you can retrieve more rustic wood, tree’s stumps, driftwood…...and its highly probable that you have a hard time sleeping because your thinking of the project or the next one…..what a curse to have in your life…lol…...if my health was good, and my back was good, i would be out there to , doing this very same thing….....or i would want to work with you and double the work, double the profits…......i cant say enough on how much i love this work…fantastic..keep bring it on..

As sure as the sun sets its fantastic. It’s sleekness reflects sophistication with textured sides . Amazingly your mass does not look to heavy but like a sculptural piece it breaths. You have opened the gates of creativity with this creation. Well done . Question what is on your chainsaw is it a guide to stop you from digging in . Tell me please I have a walnut burl trunk I want to carve out. Dan

That’s a fantastic bench. Epic chainsawing and sanding. How much does it weigh?

Very striking and original. I had to look up what a “spring board notch” was—you learn something new every day!
