Originally I wasn’t going to post this because I have posted one like it before. But after the polyurethane hit it, I felt I needed too.

Made of spalted Ash. 2” thick slabs. It’s 51” long, 41” tall & 25” deep.got some sanding and a few more coats of poly to go.

Yes, I’m still alive at central States Fair

Thanks for looking

Looks like a nice place to rest your ash.
Good job on the bench.

Wow ! I had no idea ash could look this nice ! How did you manage to avoid it cracking with all that nice figured grain ?

Way nice! Ash, huh? Grain really pops. Mind if I ask how you brace the seat and back to prevent wobble? Thanks for sharing.

Sweet. I may need to build a similar one after I build a front porch.

Still some slump here. Not nearly as bad as last year. Should get plenty of orders to keep me busy through fall.

Those are some beautiful ash slabs and you did them justice with this rustic style bench.
