From what I can see of that bench, it looks pretty.  Care to share a picture of the bench not covered?  What kind of wood is it?

Honey Locust......very hard and unstable. Short trunked trees, 3 of us bought 80 logs from MSU for chump change. I milled what I needed, then quit, Brian helped mill, seen what a pita they were just to mill, told his brother take mine. Pete milled enough to wainscoat his basement, then quit.....the rest went to firewood.

Man that wood must be a pain to work with, if it can turn out such a beautiful bench and you can say it's not worth the effort.

Hopefully it made nice fires as well.

End result was worth the effort......just a battle from start to finish.

one of those things, had no I idea what Honey Locust was like to work with, other than the hardness Black Locust isn't bad. The logs were short, lots of stress. I couldn't make the bench an inch longer, for an idea of what I was working with.

Thanks, Steve.

Not much bench action today apparently. Raised   Laugh Laugh 

Well, same here. Had other chores to do.

If I could figure out how to retain all the heat that comes from burning limbs and brush, and be able to use that retained heat to heat my house and shop, I'd be a rich man. Winkgrin  I think...... Uhoh

I remember seeing heating systems that ran off large wood stoves outside the house that connected to the ducting system in Minnesota when I was there.

Those are fairly popular. Hardy Stoves is a main brand. Keeps the mess and fire danger outside.

Nothing today, just some planed wood for a utility table laying on the planer and assorted stuff on the bench. Busy inside today.
