This piece was donated to a local charity auction. The organization wanted a nice patio bench that would seat 2-3 people. They left the design and specifics up to us. This red oak slab was the perfect shape and size for a bench! The half round legs came from the first cut off a post oak log we milled. The first and last cuts typically go unused because of their shape. We like to use them for legs and turning blanks so that no part of the tree goes to waste.
