Our log benches have always sold well at art festivals. I try to keep as much of the original character of each log as is possible. We never peel or turn our logs. All of the knots and bark that can be left in place then become highlights, which adds to that “one of a kind” look. They are used both indoors and as an accent piece outside in gardens, on patios, and decks. I’ve had one on my front porch since 2005 and it has weathered and aged beautifully. I haven’t refinished it and won’t now, because the silver aging looks better with each new season!
