Build a Bench

July 7, 2018

A few weeks ago, i posted a series of photos on Facebook.  They are images i took as i was making a solid walnut bench.  The wood came from a tree that had been cut down a couple years ago.  The bench seat is made from a slab i split out of the log last year (2017) and allowed to season somewhat over the winter. The legs come from another log i cut and split this spring.  The “rudimentary lathe” is a jig i build for making legs, but is not a true lathe as it does not spin the wood, but merely holds it firmly while i work it.  There is a typo in one of the photos near the end (i hope it doesn’t diminish your enjoyment of the pictures.)   The resolution is not the highest (it didn’t load properly at the highest resolution.) I hope you will enjoy it.  And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

    It’s a beauty. I love seeing all the many aspects of the process. So much time, attention, hard work, foresight and love.
