log chop bench

Very interesting bench created by The Practice of Everyday Design.

Inspired by the long-standing tradition of logger sports, the Log Chop Bench was premised on using a logger’s brute strength and surgical precision to carve out seats on a reclaimed log. They began by contacting the City of Toronto to find out where all the good trees go to die and learned about the different tree graveyards (as well as tree nurseries) run by the City’s Parks and Recreation department. The designers selected a log that roughly matched the dimensions they had in mind and had it transported to their work site.
