Very nice. One of these years I'll get around to trying something like this. How did you glue down the bark? Contact cement? Yellow glue? Something else?

Stappled it under the branches. Just to make it clear I do not go around and strip the birch off trees along the road or from live trees. The bark is gotten from down and rotting trees or firewood from friends.

Haha, did you get an angry PM, or this a preemptive defense?

How many trees did you murder to make the table and bench? You should be ashamed!

Actually the wood was scavanged from an log landing that they left a few years ago. It makes it nice because the wood is mostly dried and seasoned. Have to admit I did have to murder a few branches to cover the timber mates used to hold it together. (counter sink the heads and plug the holes with branch pieces leaves just another knot.)

Wow. What a great idea to use end grain wood plugs to simulate a knot!! I never thought of that before. Usually spend lots of time trying to match face grain plugs to try to make it disappear, but the simulated knot would be much faster!! Great tip!

Adkman, these frames look great - I love the way you contrast the twigs against the birch bark - I haven't seen that style before.
