Ant Hill Bench, Revisions.

In my initial design, I overlooked a lot of things. First, I didn't address the top of the bench itself. The flat slab of wood on top was too plain and uninteresting so I have now the bench looks like a tree has fallen on top of the anthill and you are sitting on top of this fallen tree. I also didn't like how the cutaway of the bench looked. It was too abrupt and looked too forced. It also didn't protect the ants directly from the elements.

This time, I made the curve more gentle, and in turn made the whole thing feel more natural. Because of this curve it also allowed for me to put a clay awning over the ants to protect them.
