Another Rite Leg Bench
« on: June 21, 2016, 09:12:07 pm »
I made this naturally stained red maple bench as a donation to the Georgia Forestry Association for Project Learning Tree and the Tree Farm System Silent Auction.

The maple slab is 2" thick and 19" wide.  The shelf is a naturally stained ambrosia maple live edged piece.  The log that this slab was sawn from sat on a logyard at a sawmill from the Spring thru the hot Summer.  The stain streaks were black, blue, green, and gray.  Nature at her best.  The legs are the Alissa Bench Legs.  The finish is 100% pure tung oil mixed 50:50 with mineral spirits. 

It sits nice.  Kinda want to keep it, now  :).

That is a beautifull bench. It looks so comfortable to sit on with the live edges that will not dig into the back of your legs. Love the bench legs also. :)

This is outstanding! The combination of your finished kiln dried slab and the artistic metal work by the Logrite company has now sent my $300 projection to the "Wood Shed".
From now on....$1050.

I'm proud of you Danny and Tamiam for a combination that was built for a good cause.  8)

There were 500 people at the Conference, and several want benches (but not at $1050  :)), so the Rite Leg Co. will be getting some more business.

Well, I had two people who saw the bench at the Georgia Forestry Association meeting and wanted one.  So, I built two more.  One will be used as a coffee table in a rustic lake house, and the second one will be used as a coffee table in a rustic lake house, too.  Thank goodness for rustic lake houses  :).  Both customer wanted the wood to look like the donated bench.  I showed them a number of other types of slabs, but no, they wanted one that looked just like the original, except that the second customer did not want a bottom shelf.  The first pic is the original donated bench/coffee table, and the next two pics are the commission pieces.

The donated original:

 

 

The second one, with an ambrosia maple shelf on the bottom:

 

 

And now, the third, without the shelf.  I love the figure and curl in this one!

 

 

 

 

I think that I did pretty good in giving them the wood that they wanted  :).  Working with fantastic wood is fantastic.

Just another bench.  Black walnut.  I made it for someone who gave me a couple of walnut trees, so I wanted to do something to thank him.  I like the curved shape.  It now resides under an outdoor pavilion.  Please forgive the messy shop.  Somebody needs to sweep the floor  :-\.

I just received 5 more pair in the wrinkle black finish.  The wrinkle black ones are really nice.

Just another couple of Rite Leg Benches.  This one is cherry.  I sold it last weekend.

 

 

Here is one made from some maple that laid in the log yard for probably 9 months.  It stained while in the pile, and there is some spalt.  Curly, too.  I love this one.  I made it to sell, but might just keep it for myself  :).

On the benches with no shelf, you have 2 unused holes on the cross piece of the legs.  Why not cut two pieces of spalted maple the size of the cross piece and mount them on top using the two holes to secure them.  It would give you a bit of color underneath and hide the unused holes.  Gary

If you don't have a shelf, you can plug the holes with black plastic plugs.  That is what I do.

You need the slabs flat or the bench will rock.  If there is a little warp or twist, put the slab back on the sawmill, shim it so that it does not rock, cut a flat face, and use this as the bottom reference face when you run the slab through the planer.  It there is a lot of twist and warp, choose a better slab.

I use winding sticks to test if the legs will sit flat on the floor.  Turn the slab upside down, position the legs where they will be attached, lay a couple of 1" x 1" stickers across the feet of each leg, then sight down to see if the sticks are parallel.  If not, you will be able to see which leg needs to be shimmed.   



 

BTW, I sold the naturally stained, spalted, curly maple slab this weekend  :).  I guess that I will have to make another for myself.

I promptly received my Rite Leg Alissa bench legs just in time to put this together for a gift for my mother on Mother's day.  She loved it as did all the other ladies at our place for lunch.  Now everyone wants a live edge Rite Leg bench!

I have another set of legs that I think I'm gonna use to make a cherry bench.  I still need to saw the slab and let it dry a bit.  I have a nice cherry blow down that I will use.  One thing I would also like to say about the Rite Leg bench legs, is they are nice!  They far exceeded my expectations from 2 perspectives.  1) these things are heavy and sturdy.  I knew from this company they would be more than adequate, but I was not expecting this level of durability.  2) fit and finish.  I got the wrinkle finish which is great.  Not only is the powdercoating perfect but also the welds and construction. 

I will be getting more of these in the future.  I will probably try some of the other styles and products.  P.S.  I have nothing to do with this company, I just like to share my opinion when I find great products that just work for me.

If your cherry slab includes the pith, it will crack badly as it dries.  Better to use a cherry slab that does not contain the pith.

Here is the latest one, made from a 9/4 spalted sycamore slab sawn at the last Project in May.  Here is the subject log posing with an old Goat. 

 

 

Here is one of the slab cuts off the log.

 

 

The wood was kiln dried to 8%, planed, sanded to high heaven, and finished with 4 or 5 coats of pure tung oil cut 50/50 with mineral spirits.  Once Customsawyer opened up the log and I saw all the spalt, I had him cut one flatsawn slab before beginning the quartersawing process specifically so that I could make this bench.  The shelf is one of the spalted quartersawn 4/4 boards.

The quartersawn ray fleck is stunning  8)

I wonder if Logrite could incorporate some type of unbotrusive adjuster into the feet or slab mount to relevel the bench if the slab does twist a little over time.

Here is another piece that was made by Kirk Kameron using the quartersawn sycamore from the last Sycamore Project. The use of the sycamore ray fleck to make the fish scales is perfect.   

 

    

All the sycamore sawn at the last Project has been kiln dried, planed, and sold except for three narrow boards about 3" wide.  A customer furniture maker bought a good bit to make a table.  I know that it will be stunning.

I managed to get some persimmon slabs from a very large old persimmon that was on the right-of-way of a county road in North Georgia.  The tree was over 20" in diameter and had died.  I made a nice bench from one of the slabs for a customer.  She is going to really like this one.  The wood is not stained.  This is the natural color after 3 coats of pure tung oil.

 

 

 

 

She did not want a shelf, so I plugged the holes for the shelf with black plastic plugs.  The 5/16" size friction fits into the hole perfectly.  You just tap them in with a rubber mallet.  You can get them at widgetco.com.
