This long bench top is 149” long x 18” wide and 1.75” thick. The knots form 2 hearts along the center. Finish is Watco Danish oil and Deft laquer. These 2 boards were surprisingly straight for starting out 16’ long and 10” wide, thanks to my favorite sawmill- Mountain Heart Woodworks. The top is attached to some Ikea cabinets.

Like the look. You still get better color than I do. Still think my bugs are lazy :-)
