Live Face Bench

May 8, 2015

I’ve had this cherry offcut from cutting a curved log into lumber in my shop for over two years and I’ve been wanting to make a bench out of it.  The offcut tapers towards the center so I thought the thicker ends would make nice legs and the thinner center would give the piece some nice vertical movement.

    Did you cut one side of the bench so that you could establish square
    To make cuts at ends for legs perfect?

    • That’s how it was cut from the sawmill so I ran with the theme of having a straight edge
