stolid bench – before the snow

IMG_0026

Sometimes you want to make something whimsical, pointless, fragile, and ephemeral. sometimes you don’t. last weekend, I wanted to make something functional, straightforward, and honest. This stack immediately sprang to mind when I saw the log that I used as the seat portion. The wood is smooth and straight as an arrow, just the right thickness to blend with the scale of the elements I use in my more stable builds.

It was warm when I started stacking, but the temps were dropping fast, and as I finished, the snow began to fly. I have a few sets of photos of this build in various states of snowiness; I’ll post the others separately later. The bench is still there, a week and a half later, with footprints all around. Apparently other people are looking for a place to sit, too.
