A neighbour had a pair of Norfolk Island Pines taken down most of the first tree went to wood turners and the bottom 25 of the second went to a canoe builder. All that was left over was a couple of 9’ logs. I made this bench for him and got 2 8/4 boards of one and milled the other too. The legs are carved out with the chainsaw to receive the top and hold it steady.

No finish yet. Any advice on what finish to use would be nice.

Thanks for looking

Nice use of a tree that would have been firewood. Love the simple garden look.
