  Here are some pics of my  first "Bandsaw Bench". As you can see in the first pic my feet are hardly touching the ground so I had to take a nip off the legs.

 

  After building the bench I thought it would be nice to have a place to set my glass of water so I had to build a nice little crotch table as well.

 

   It is nice to have seating around the mill so the visitors don't get tired while talking to you.LOL.

 

Here are some pics of my leg jig.

  Thanks. I don't think they look very rustic but I got the idea in my head and had to try it. Once you get the jig set up and cleated off it doesn't take to long to saw them out. I think I might try squaring up the edges on a slab and go for the "contemporary" look to match the legs. Maybe a backrest that matches the angle of the legs??? I get a lot of critical visitors so I won't be long finding out what they like and don't like.
