The seat and back of this bench are made of spalted maple. The legs are spalted poplar. Using up logs on benches. I guess you can’t take it with you.
Thanks for looking

Quite Nice! You really let your artistic imagination take over as you make use of all that might be considered trash or fire wood to others. Thanks for the pics.

Great work Monte!. How you drive the grain of the legs so that there is no risk of splitting?

Both the maple and poplar have a lot of “character” and great color! My maple is pretty plain whit and the little poplar I see is green! Someone will snap this one up quick! Raise the prices on these really pretty woods.
