I built this bench so I had a place to sit and put my boots on for the winter. The seat is made from Ash and the legs are Elm.

Good job. Was this milled on your homemade band saw mill?

Great looking bench—I like the joinery and the live edge!

Thanks everyone.

Yes this was milled on my homemade sawmill.
The elm was actually a small 2’ stump I found in my dads bush that had been cut and was lying on the ground for a few years. I figured why not cut it up and see what I get. The angle on the feet is where the wedge was cut out of the tree.
The ash seat was a log that I found in dads firewood pile and rescued it. It has a nice crotch in it that I cut off the top and still have.

Have your say...
