This bench was first attempt at turning legs. Needless to say it took 12 legs to yield 4 that were usable.

Nice bench – more details please ;-). What are the dimensions, were the legs turned on the lathe, or bought? Just curious.

A great looking bench. I especially like the splayed legs which are a bit unusual with turned legs. I also admire your willingness to go the extra mile to get a fine result.

Great job!

Have you put finish on it? If not, are you going to – and what are you going to use?

To all…Tank for all the compliments. They mean a lot. I think I’ll continue with my sawdust and kindling collection, after all I do make lots of it ;-)
