This is a slat bench I designed and created. Inspired by 1960’s designers, namely George Nelson but others as well. I wanted a little more of an Atomic Retro feel to it. One side has a straight cut and straight tapered legs and the other has a slanted cut with splayed tapered legs.

It’s nowhere close to perfect, but it’s a decent practice piece for a patio/garden bench. (could be used as a coffee table too I guess.)

@gfadvm Yep, stained pine. I am broke so needed something inexpensive.

That is so nice. I would always sit in the air conditioned part, just like that cute little girl.
