This slab was not too much fun to move around as is 2.5” thick. The base is a vintage coal stove frame/legs that was not much fun lugging around either. Once put together, it takes 2 to move this stout piece around. Had to clean, repaint the base, and add a cut of wood in the gap between legs to help attach the slab of sycamore. This lumber is filled with worm holes, bug holes, spalting, and wild grain patterns. This was my first time working with sycamore and it is amazing what one will notice when working with different species.

Nice pictures of the top. Any of the whole project with better lighting ? : )

Great Looking Bench. I Like The Old Base. Nice Project.

-- You will never build it unless you try. The second one always turns out better.

Have your say...
