Found these two Logs on the rubbish pile, both 4metres long.
I suspect they where roof supports for one of the old fishing village houses here in Hong Kong.

I suspect they are cypress pine. With the Father and Brother in Laws help we ripped them with my old 9 inch Makita saw, a rip either side, and created this garden seat. I retired the old alpine skis and used them for bracing at the back. All in 7 hours pre Happy Hour.

One of the pics shows the total waste of the project from the two logs, we used it to roast some pork.

Thanks for reading ,I hope you like it.

Love the skis! In Vermont you see benches made of old skis and snowboards all over the place. Great job.

Boy O boy, if that isn’t ingenuity, I don’t know what is!
Great job brother.
You can do more with less, then a lot of pro’s I know.
I really like when I see you have posted a new project.
Very nice work.
(And nice roasted pork too!)

You did a nice job on this bench and it’s always nice if you can use salvaged wood.

What a great bench for two.. I so remember my stops in Hong Kong many years ago. Always like walking around town seeing all the neat buildings.

Great salvage of those logs—and great looking bench! I’ll bet you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from it!
