12 white Oak live edge free form benches 8’ long for Jack Daniels Corp. For their cooperage visitors center. 12 benches made with white oak to represent the white oak that their barrels are made from. I made a batch of 10 for them around 7 years ago & now they are opening a new visitors center with 12 new benches. Kiln dried white oak, with a clear satin spar urethane finish. White oak butterflies too. Not in every piece, just here & there where needed.

Nice Benches. I helped pay for those Benches. I’ll try to drink enough so you can build another 12 soon :-)

You have highlighted the natural beauty of the white oak with these benches. Great job leaving some character in the planks, it really adds to the beauty and visual interest.

Big Oak fan here. I really like the well done butterflies. I have seen other people cut those “deformation” out and it really bothers me. Like the dog too. You have to give her/him credit tho. ;-)
