Thanks! Lol so I must be crazy because I don't have this project finished and last night I ended up with two oak slabs. Both 8 ft long 4 inches thick... They have been drying for about a year. No clue what I am gonna make with them. I will post pictures later, don't want to go out in the cold just yet. Lol

Ha.
Gets addictive doesn't it.
I also have 2 slabs in the shed I don't know what to do with, but I couldn't pass them up.

Yes! Lol I forgot to post pictures yesterday. Here they are, not the best picture. So I was thinking that they would make awesome benchs if I got them milled down to two inches thick, maybe. Not sure, I was looking up benches for ideas and found one I really like, the second picture. I think that is pine, but I would love to be able to make some thing like that. Just don't have all the skills to do it lol

The bench is a simple build. You'll figure it out. Do a mock up with some corrugated cardboard in small form. Once you stare at the mockup for awhile, it'll come to you how to build it.
You could also do it in 3/4" plywood. It would how you the weak areas that need supported.

Enjoy your wood dust addiction! There is no re-hab facility for it. It gets worse. I'm restoring a 1909 farmhouse now.
