Benches
« on: March 12, 2018, 10:26:05 am »
Built a couple of benches from a blow-down Red Oak over the weekend.  Milled a few more slabs for other benches and projects down the road.  Haven't done this in a long time.  First time here in the new home of North Carolina.  I forgot how much fun it is.  Old Husky 395xp was fantastic!  One tank of gas and one chain for five cuts.

Very nice Ray.    I was wondering what you put on the bench to help keep the wood from discoloring over time.

Honestly, I was going to let mine weather.  But after a couple of days looking at it I am havimg second thougjts.  I will have to do some research.  The wood is still very green.  Anything solid like polyurethane would fail for sure.

Ohio.

I have some trees I need to drop on my land 3hrs south.  If I can keep from using them for testing. I might try something like this. But not near as nice. 

Just something to seat on etc when 3-4 of us back there testing the saws out.

If you decide to try it, let me know.  Looks like 6 and a 1/2 hours to Columbus from here.
