Commemoration bench

This was a first for us, we were asked by a close friend to make a commemoration bench for her son, who had recently passed away, his Scouting name was Baloo, hence the carving in the back. The stipulation that it needed to be hewn from a huge log came after we had agreed to make the piece so we dug deep and got on with it, we estimate that it weighed one and a half tons when it was completed.
