    They could very well end up that way, lol.

    Heres the update, ( I can only work on this project for a couple of hours a day before the body starts screaming.)

    The big one will be made into 3 tables if everything goes right, grins.

    Thanks akgun, still trying to work the leg thing out.

    (anybody notice the face on the pedestal, I did'nt have a clue til I looked at the picture on here, lol,)

    I've tried 5 differant stains and the best one that I came up with for spruce is a "GUNSTOCK" blend, it brings out the grains and also shows the naturel colors.

    Maybe somebody that is looking at this post could post another thred about stains, and what woods they should be used on.

    Sorry about the box pic. this picture thing is kinda challanging if you don't have them all in one folder.

    Any way that is the newest bench, see how it comes out.
