So this is the process of the pine bench build that goes with the one legged pine table. This ensemble went (yes, I’m done already. Sorry for being a lazy bum and not uploading) into a relatively small kitchen. The diagonal braces are for mitered joins of the boards that go on top. The whole ensemble has a completely hand planed finish and a coat of sillica oil, which doesn’t darken the wood like linseed oil. You can see the planing done in an earlier post, where I fitted the dovetail pin in my kanna.

I got from a neighbor  cones from its Jeffrey pine and decorated with them the Christmas tree of the small chapel of Wichern Diakonie Frankfurt Oder. It looks better than I had imagined. So now I’m in the mood for Christmas. (despite spring weather)
I wish you all a peaceful and contemplative Christmas time.

Ich habe von einer Nachbarin Zapfen von ihrer Jeffrey-Kiefer bekommen und mit ihnen den Weihnachtsbaum der kleinen Kapelle der Wichern diakonie Frankfurt Oder geschmückt. Es sieht besser aus als ich es mir vorgestellt hatte. So jetzt bin ich in der Stimmung für Weihnachten. (trotz Frühlingswetter)
Ich wünsche allen eine ruhige und besinnliche Weihnachtzeit.
