When the remodel of the house was going to happen; a beautiful tree had to come out. It was honey locust. Most became excellent firewood, but a couple of slabs were just lying around for a few years. Well it looked like they were going to end up wasted.

The idea was tossed around about some kind of front porch bench.

They are about 38 inches ling and seemed to find a good home here. I left them at least partly “rustic”.

They have about 5 coats of marine quality spar varnish.

The attachment brackets are made from bed-frame steel, that we but at Goodwill.

I love the grain pattern in the wood. Placing them on either side of the entrance was a great idea.

Like the rustic look and the live edge. Makes a great looking bench at the front porch. Great job!

Have your say...
