These are a pair of maple benches I made using a slab of maple I picked up. I made both of them with identical legs and all maple for the legs and aprons. Not much to it but they are finished with linseed oil and 3 coats of a semi gloss poly.

Nice and simple. Live edge makes a nice statement.

Gorgeous benches! The tops are stunning with the live edge, pretty grains and great finish.

Have your say...
