What they were after was benches and stools for the big ole table.
There country home called for a old barn door for a dinning room table, but was incomplete
with out the compliments of appropriate seating. So our neighbor had a few cypress slabs and a few short cypress logs in which I used to chase the necessary parts for the stools and benches.
The pecky cypress did great for the seat tops, they were sanded smooth and lightly profiled.
One of the logs had damage to one side which I saw as perfect for the leg area of the stools,
so I mounted it up on the mill and cut 2 1/2" cookies for the seat bottoms, and it worked out very well.
