Kayso, this bench is really kind of a weird and non-traditional piece, the balance points are sensitive, and you don't want to be having a "wrastling" match atop of it. The sculptural lines of the arborvitae "legs" are very unique and have a quiet beauty of their own.
Loving the red tones in the legs!
A nice close up.
The grain on this slab is just awesome, I didn't do much to it, just a little hand planing, sanding and sealer.
