I made this bench from the last pieces of osage orange that I had on hand. The tree does not grow where I live now, but grows from about Grand Rapids south, especially in Tennessee and that latitude.
It’s an incredibly dense wood and very resistant to weather. It carves well with sharp tools and has an amazing yellow/orangish color.
This bench has three supports and tilts slightly forward. The two end legs were from part of a tree that had broken, twisted and then “froze” in that position as it continued to grow.
