Re: Rustic Bench
One time, Wald Jager.
I cut the legs long because I didn't know how high I wanted the finished bench top.
I shimmed up two legs to get bench level. Then took a piece of wood (1 1/12" thick) and scribed a pencil line around each leg bottom.
I cut legs one time. Solid as a rock.
It's fun project. My Oak and Locust was dried wood.
Make sure you use dry wood for legs. Green wood will shrink. If green wood is used for legs they will become wobbly and loose, as it dries.
Green wood can be used for bench top. As it dries, it will tighten around legs.
