This is bench I made for a friend using some Pine he had provided. I needed to make the top a little wider than the pine was so I added a strip of Oak to give it the needed width. Planed, sanded to the 220 and finished a very light coat of stain (so it was not white) and two coats of spar-urethane.

Thanks for looking

Very Simple and effective! Love the contrast of the oak. What will you be using this for?
