This entry bench is my solution to “donations”. I only donate to charities that I like, but it seems that things at the auctions get low bids….(never more than a couple hundred dollars). So my solution is to build a “Donation Bench”. The plan is to donate it to those charities that regularly ask if I would like to donate something – and then just to go and buy it at the auction…..it’ll be cheaper in the long run, the charities will get the much needed cash and I won’t spend a hundred hours building something that only auctions for $400 max – though if one ever gets to $800, this bench is gone…
Made from black Walnut slab with Ebony accents – fit the base to the bench and added some G~n~G details on the legs. Two coats of sealer, 3 coats of gloss poly….its a good donation plan, (thought a little devious) …first time I hope nobody buys my work.
