This baby is completely functional and safe! Stability at %100 Aesthetic at %90 and Safety at %80 but soon to be %100 all around. Minor spacers are being added to minimize the amount of space that the support-bar has on either side of the tree trunk. Since these photos have been taken all of the aesthetic work along with seat carving has been taken care of. A beautiful coating of varnish took the tree to the next level. Thing looks like it was dipped in honey!
