Could not bring myself to cut these slabs to make the bench smaller and it was not until I was almost done that I realized it looked like a gator. It’s like it was meant to be. I made it for the Marshland Festival at the end of this month. Yall come.

Great bench. You know… could put some maple triangle “teeth” inlays at the top of the sap wood of the back bench and it would look like gator teeth! LOL

Great job and I bet it will be well received at the festival.
