This is a bench is made by inverting the inside and outside of a log. The log is shaven into the shape of cylinder before it is cut in half to have the inside and outside flipped. Outside of the rectangle has a solid, smooth surface that fits into the living space while the inside has been processed to bring out the gain in the wood for a rough, gritty surface. Part man made and part natural, both of these important and conflicting aspects that are important to people are included ambivalently.
