Its been a long trip to get this done! Three years ago we had to cut to big trees to make our house, cut then in planks and air dried them. Back then I had asked for a 4” plank from the pine tree to make this bench legs! The top I laminated from a 2” thick harder wood. After many designs I came up with this I already have a low roman bench thats very practical for planning and other stuff. I made this bench to do all the other things.All the joinery was made by hand tools. Let me tell you this, I underestimated the fisical work involved in making this bench.The hole bench can be disassemble in less than a minute. It weighs about 80Kg. I plan to have it outside in summer and inside in winter.
The finish was 1:1 tung oil and vegetable turpintine Hope you enjoy it!I plan to make some dogholes for the holdfasts and keep on adding stuff to make it a handy little workbench out of it!
