ID:	62863 I was going to make this bench for my son for Christmas out of 2"/10"/8' Pine but it worked out where there was a funeral Home that was re-modeling and went and picked-up two 10 footer church pews for free . Well here is that Beautiful pew that was Oak , I cut it down to 5' long and I stripped the whole thing and free hand Routed the Razorback into the back . Well all I like it two coats of Polly and it'll be ready for him for Christmas , the picture here does it no justice for this Oak poped when I put the light stain on it . any comments are welcome ...........MB

    Ah, the Church of the Running Razorback. I understand thousands of fans parishioners attend services on Sundays.

    Very nice work, Marshall.

    Agree, that is a pretty amazing free hand job on the Razorback. Did you put some stain in the routed-out section?
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I usually use woodconditioner on my wood before I stain - cause if you don't it'll stain those open grains darker - and this is what I wanted to happen - so I didn't use the woodconditioner . thanks for so asking this - for this brain storm hit me before the finishing started ..........MB

    A small trim router and a 1/4" letter making bit , and I also used a roto-zip to clean the grooves out better . This was the first time I'd use this Roto-zip since I brought it some 6 years ago , just never found the use for it until now . .................thanks for your comments Allen ...........
