Hello there curious gift receivers who are still here for some reason, WoodReviewer here today with the first gift in the 7th installment of my yearly Advent Calendar. Now based on some comments I received yesterday, some of you are confused as to how an advent calendar works. Now sure why this wasn’t an issue for the past 6 years, but it is an issue now, so I thought now would be a good time to explain it. Every number on the advent calendar corresponds to a day in December, and every day the corresponding door opens and a new gift unveiled. Want an example of this? Well, here is today’s gift.
Now I know what you are thinking, WoodReviewer, you have made a bench before. That is true. But this is also year 7 of these calendars and to be honest I started to ran out of ideas like 5 years ago, so just expect a few repeats at this point. Anyway, What makes this bench unique compared to the the other ones the sides of the bench are solid with holes for some beams to go through.
And then those beams hold a support under them which then support the rest of the slats in the bench, effectively meaning the entire bench if held up by the two main beams.
If you are new to understanding how wood grain works, the main thing you should notice from the bench is that the slats go from one side of the bench to the other, with the wood grain going along with the slats.
One more feature with this bench is that like all future gifts, the entire bench of made with physics constraints and welds included, and this bench also has seats included just to make Andrea happy.
Anyways, that is all for today. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what new gift I have for all of you, or what is more likely how I was able to put a new spin on some remake of an older gift.
