Thanks all! I bought the walnut log from my Amish log yard & sawed the slabs myself. The back is only 21” but loaded with character!! I am just about finished wit a 7’6” long walnut bench as we speak!

That’s one cool piece. It’s all you said and even more. I really like the look and size of the big bow tie or butter fly joinery work. One of these days ill need to learn how to do,that.
