Reclaimed Wood Bench

This bench started out as an old rotting bench that was left outside for many years. As you can see I removed all the legs and cross members and returned, on a lathe, the ones that were still usable and made new ones for the rotted legs. The top needed to be completely recreated. There was a back that had rotted off so I used walnut to inlay over the post holes. And the bench top was beginning to split so I used a butterfly joint to strengthen the bench top. Dimensions 72" x 18" x 17"
