Sunday finished log bench

Well, almost finished. I still have some sanding and chisel work to do, attach the vintage bottle opener on one end, and possibly do either branding or inlaid antique horse shoes. Pretty simple and fun bench to make.

Hand cut tenon

Thanks guys.
Brett- I made the main sit part out of a ~150# log, so 75# for that. The end pieces are each maybe 30# or so. I would call it 100-110#. Not light. The next bench, which I'll start tomorrow, will have different end support logs and lighter.

Mom- Ya, that was Ben. His eye with a camera is astonishing! I have maybe 30 pictures he's taken that are unique and very well taken.
