Children want places to sit and look at a bug, to lean against, to talk with friends, or to just watch what's going on in the playground.

Teachers also love comfortable places to sit and watch what's going on, or to sit with their "buddies," or to console a child.

Log Benches made from real, whole logs, are particularly attractive features as they blend in with the natural theme yet are practical and low cost.

Bark will still be on the log, so children can see and study bark up close, try to identify the type of tree, and play with its texture. The bench also gives off the wonderful, natural smell of wood, and as it ages, the bark will slough off and expose the smooth surface of the tree wood beneath.

Log used in the benches does not need to be treated and will age naturally. Log is typically about 8" diameter, 48" long, and when mounted on the bases, is 10-16" tall (depending on requested height). Bench for toddlers is 10" height. Ages 2+ would be 14-16" height.

Bench comes as a three-piece kit. No installation is required; sit on it as soon as you get it!

Two, separate Log Benches are shown in this picture. The price is for a single Log Bench.

During the season when the bark is “tight,” we will probably make the decision to keep it on. However, should it arrive on your premises without bark, it’s because It was cut during the “loose bark” season, and therefore subject to shipping damage.
