I was on the fence with my opinion of your bench, until I saw the final pic. Nice work!

You would get my vote, if I didn’t have to register to do so.

You have around 640 votes including mine! LOL! If I remember I will cast another. But Even if you don’t win, Id post this with design magazines? Good feel and great lines in the piece.

Visited your website, I’m envious of the mentors you have had. :) I’m registered. Have you read ” Furniture With Soul”?

Doc, thank you so much for your support!!! I have read Furniture With Soul. I hope to send some more of my work to design blogs and magazines as soon as I begin to build a product line. Once I get closer to a production setting I will want all the exposure I can get with the ability to produce. Thanks for reading!

Very nice work. Was your joinery traditional or modern?

Thank you everyone for your support! Dave, I am not sure what you mean. I cut all of the joinery on a multi-router and some was done by hand so I assume traditional. Nothing was done by the computer.

You should shoot these pictures over to John Economaki at Bridge City Tools Works. He has posted some pictures of furniture that have lines similar to this design. He might vote for you, too.

Byron you answered it. To me modern would be a biscuit or domino.
