    That is a lovely and fairly simple design that even I could tackle! I'll have to add that to the 104 other "things to do around the property" list.

I sliced those in half with the chainsaw and used the saw to cut a "V" about 6 inches from each end on the rounded or bark side. I then went back to the log and cut some 24 inch logs and cut a bit off one side to make it flat, then arranged them so the flattened half log lay across them. It made a sturdy bench and they lasted about 10 years. I then made more the same way. Easy and effective way to get seating... And it looks good in a forest setting.

    I cut some which sound similar just to use them around our trails and fire pit.
