Pine Chair Before & After

Pine chair Before...

I found this piece of pine at a building site, ready to go into a skip, the ground was being ripped up to create foundations for an extension. The seat shape was instantly obvious to me and so I asked if I could take the wood off the builders hands, they were more than happy to release it!
I cleaned it up, stripped the mud, roots and bark, let it dry out over a 6 month period and then finished the piece through sanding and polishing to create the chair you see below.
