Really nice bench!  I got a pair of legs and now I'm searching for just the right slab!

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.

Thats good news. Nothing like adding GRAVEY to your work. I'd buy one if I could afford it.  ;D

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.

I used the first prototype Alissa style bench legs that Kevin and Tammy sent to me to try out to make a pecan bench.  Of course that one is still mine.

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  :).
