Hey All,
The wife has expressed an interest in a bench seat to match our kitchen table. I would like to match the wood if possible. Not really sure what it is though. It’s fairly light in color, and seems to be pretty open grained. The end-grain looks alot like oak. Anyway, check out the pics and see if it looks familiar.
Thanks,
Joe

You might have to buy a table and use the materials from it to make your bench. Try a used furniture store to get it at reasonable prices.

Or buy her a new table and benches that match.
