Bookmatched slabs of walnut. Natural hole! The back is 1” & the seat is 2” X 16. Its 6’ long. Finished with ….. you guessed it – spar urethane. This one never hit the store, someone bought it right out of the shop.

These are really great benches. I do the same kind of thing (in eastern Pennsylvania – Lancaster County). May I ask what kind of prices you get for these? That seems to be the hardest part of the whole thing – pricing work. Do you have a storefront business as well as the internet and Ebay?

I saw some of your items on Ebay but haven’t ever had any luck with that. My business is virtually all local.

Anyway, great work – keep it going.

Very nice,
TexPenn, how do I go about finding a slab like this for a bench around the house?

It’s easy to see why it sold so quickly!

This is a very Beautiful slab bench! I am making a slab bench now but without the back. Was not sure how to attach the back to it. Is your legs all one piece? And how many coats of urethane did you use? Thanks and hope yaw have a nice 4th. of July!
