First go at some rustic benches

Recommended Posts


Instead of just cutting up for firewood the big bits of Scots pine I was given, I thought I'd make some rustic benches:




Hard work with my little MS181 (14" bar) and full of admiration for the Jimny in towing them up the hill to where they needed to be




I fitted a front hitch so I could winch the logs up onto the trailer

Fair bit of admiration for the trailer too


Quite so! I bought it second hand as was after a cheap little trailer to modify (hence the poles which will hold a builders bag open or keep huge amounts of brash in place). I think it must have once held mobile lights or something as it's really rugged, all steel, with brakes & handbrake. It has a long drawbar too so easy to reverse.
