    Here is one. It is the smaller of the two. It fit snugly under the other one. The bigger one has chickens on the legs instead of the top. I have sealed them in polyurethane. As soon as they dry I will post pictures of both of them. I built the benches and my Mother did the art. I am trying to get better at woodwork because I would like to slow the mechanic and tractor work down some as it is starting to take it toll on me. I didnt feel these were furniture quality so I had the artwork done to hide that fact. The wood is recovered wood and I dont know the species.

    I am going to list them both as a set on Craigslist on the morrow.

    Thank You for looking

    Quote:I did not do the art. My Mother did the art. I wish I could take credit for that. Thank You for the kindness.

    they look fantastic with the varnish on them! Go you! Your mom did an awesome job with the artwork but you have to take credit for the benches, after all, what is a bench if it falls to pieces when you sit on it? I think that as a set they could go for about 75.00 or so.
