I had some trees cut and milled into logs, and this project is the first of a set of planter benches that will use the curved scrap pieces. This one is made of pine, unfinished apart from the top, which is a single coat of spar varnish, with a liberal schmear of wax on top. surfacing and joinery was all done by hand. This was a perfect case where doing it by hand is simpler and faster than machine. joinery is dados and pocket screws. The pocket screws are really there just to keep the legs attached when it gets moved around – i didn’t use any glue.
