First: I interviewed Jake for his "Public Service Announcement" but we both agreed that we'll save his winterising advice for next year... BEFORE winter actually hits.
Second: As promised, here is the beginnings of a step-by-step guide that Jake gave to me (to the best of his memory anyway) to building the beautiful bench he made for his sister.
|The bench in all its glory!|
|For example, they chose a red metal roof to match the one on the sugar shack.|
|Custom floating vanity in the powder room|
|Bench they had made|
|Close-up of the bench|
When they purchased their wood, they also decided to purchase 4 additional slabs to give to each child (and their spouses I GUESS).
|Some of the live-edge wood.|
|At this point it had been kiln dried, but nothing else done to it whatsoever.|
That is where we started.
With a live-edge slab of wood and a million ideas of what we could do with it!
My next post will cover the first steps Jake took and how he settled on the final design.
