Urethane,stain or Shellac. I can never decide. This is more of an indoor bench so I think Shellac.

If you have a late model Dodge with a Cummins,this is the oil filter wrench that makes it easy to change your filter. A lot of guys go through the wheel well but that is a struggle.

A good friend logged his farm and the logger saved me the third log pine. He even loaded it on my trailer with his picker. three nice loads,doesn't get easier then that. Now I have some milling to do!

In the last post I picked up all those nice logs but winter has set in and I have not had a chance to do any milling. It has been below zero that last few nights (-10*) and I had to charge the battery a little to get the tractor started. Then it jelled up with anti gel in the fuel. I picked up some fuel cut 50/50 with kerosene and with the help of a heat gun she fired back up. You do need to be prepared for that serious cold! Cold and snow do make a days work a little harder!  It warmed up to 15 today and I worked on a new log bunk for the mill. I'll get some pics up as I make progress.
Stay Warm!

Rich,

   Way late asking but nice benches. Did you pre-cut the wooden legs or trim to length after installation?

    I make mine mortise & tenon style then turn them upside down on the mill, clamp them, spread the band wide and cut them all at 17" so they all end up the same height and angle.
 

 
These 3 are swamp chestnut oak and came off the same serious bend in the log. I had to add the 5th leg in the center of the curve because they were so off center they wanted to tilt backwards. Each one was cut to length with one pass of the sawmill head/band,

Love these benches and the curved log is where I hope my wide head will pay off.

David,

   I always say the uglier the log the prettier the benches. With that wide head it will be much easier to set the width to cut the legs to length.

    One thing about cutting curves if you can moderately clamp in the middle of the curve you can often  cut a few extra inches by rotating first one then the other end into line with the sawhead.
