Wagon wheel slab bench
« on: August 16, 2017, 07:34:18 pm »
Does the slab need to have the bark on it to be called live edge?
If so what do you call the slab with only the bark removed?
This is not finished yet. It gets more wood added.

Live edge don't need bark on to be called that.  It's the edges that ain't milled square that makes it live edge.  That looks really neat.

I don't have my steamer done. So I don't know how I'm going to make the wood for
the back rest and arms yet.

Try bent lamination. It can be addictive. Use a vacuum bag and forms.
