Oak "Chaise longue "

Recommended Posts

I recently finished this garden bench , had the idea in my head for a while just a matter of selecting / finding suitable pieces , made from what I know as bone Oak from Stagheaded trees or just dead limbs in the interior of the crown , lots of character , very strong and decay resistant ...I may oil it next spring or leave as is ..lightly bleached ...  posing in front of my  Parthenocisus tricuspidata !!

Can you show us detail of the seat joining to the uprights? We have quite a lot of super wobbly black locust which lasts well and has an ultra rural look to it and I’d like to have a go at using some in a bench like that.
