I got the posts in for the bench (well, I got the holes dug), but of course I hit a big hunk of chert in one of them and my neighbor has my breaker bar and is out of town so I had to grind an old axle down to break it up. Ah well....

Once set, those will be cut level to bench height and the log seat will be notched flat and countersunk lagged to the posts.

Where is the bench in relation your oven/bbq/cooking center? What finish is required for the Texas weather?

Here is another pic. One side of the log will be set at bar height between the pergola poles (the one with the bark still on on the left), The bar is right on the right edge of the oven house and there is 5 foot between the bar and the bench.

Here is a backyard panorama with the kitchen on the right.

Derkp for finish I am going to use a Sikkens sealer. It has the ability to be resealed without removing the old sealer, and has a 5 or 6 year life expectancy.

Large back yards are to die for, ours is too small, I do have .93 of an acre near Hill Air Force base with all of the bee,chicken,garden, etc. located there. What is the stack in the center of the pergola? it looks like a flue?

It is a cast iron fireplace I haven't wrapped it in masonry yet, but it works fine as is.

Finished the bench and bar. It took a while to figure out how to mount the bar, we settled on carving a hole, then making a cut and using all-thread to clamp it onto the pole.

Looks great TScarborough,
Some pegs cut to fit and drove in those holes but left sticking out just enough to accent them would be a good touch .

I will plug them after a while, will let it settle in then tighten again and finish it.

Tom,

How did you bore those holes in your bar height log/table? Large hole saw?

I noticed the two poles that support your wood bar in your older build photos, did you cut them off and re-cement them in or did you hike that 1/2 log/table over the ends?

I am thinking of building a log bowery type thing to cover a few picnic tables and have access to pine logs 8-12 " dia. Do you think setting them in cement would be enough or do I need to treat the ends with somethiing first?

Thanks for your brain power,

Derk
