I had orders for 2 benches. Had 4 slabs of Ash from the same log. The legs are made of poplar slabs. First bench is about 52 inches wide and the second one is about 58 inches wide. Coated in outdoor urethane. 3 coats sucked up over a gallon of finish. I love old ash logs.

Thanks for looking

You certainly have the ability (skill) to strike a balance of enhancing the natural beauty with the intended design and functionality of all your furniture…. beautiful work as always !
