I got all the wood for this and many future projects for free at work. It’s made from pine and the bench seat is 39” x 11 1/2” x 3”. It stands 23” and was finished with BLO. I added birch 1” plug to cover screws, and I’ve been wanting to do a Butterfly key so I used pallet wood of unknown species for that. Thanks for looking and inspiring my addiction!!

That is some massive timber. And free is always best! Those birch plugs are pretty colorful for birch. Love the bowtie. And especially love the Smiley Face on the near end.

The smiley face is mother nature approving of your work.

Great job

Looks great and solid. Like the timber and the plugs, knots and the bowtie added some character to it.

Have your say...
