Just had to share this natural shape. Aspen and weathered wood…probably Doug fir slab. No bottom cross piece…a great place for boots.

Very nice. I’ll bet you had a vision in your mind of the bench just as soon as you saw that piece you used for the back. Keep up the good work.

I can’t get enough of this kind of furniture. If I could – my home inside and out would be filled with it.
Keep them coming – at least I can look at them online.

Makes me want to go tromping through the woods to see if I can “find” any shapes like these…. (presuming it wasn’t 20 below with a windchill, and 2 feet of snow back there)

LOve the bench. I have a slab of poplar and a really interesting piece off oddly shaped cedar branch that in my minds eye is going to look something similar to yours. I hope my comes out as extraordinary as yours.

The back looks animated; as if it were alive and in repose. Almost like the sinuous back is a person or thing being held aloft by a line of people. Thanks.
