I made this bench out of a coastal live oak. The tree fell over so I got the chainsaw out and cut a big slab out. Tools used were: Chainsaw 24” bar, 3” hand planer, and a palm sander. I put some clear coat on it, but I have always like a thick coat on benches, so i put a 1/4” deep resin over it to finish. I am not sure the dimensions, it was more eyeballed than anything else but several times my saw’s bar wouldnt go all the way through. The legs were just stumps from a different limb. Due to lack of tools, (at college, worked with three different power tools) i made it simple and just sawed three stumps. Hopefully my grandparents never want it moved, this crazy thing is HEAVY.
