April, 2014—This is cypress, stained with “Spiced Walnut” – a stain I bought at Woodcraft. The bench is approximately 18-inches tall, 22-inches wide, and 13-inches deep. The design is my interpretation of a similar bench seen in a magazine. Joinery was done with the Kreg pocket screw system. Finished with three coats of satin poly.

Nice job, I like the design. :-)
I just built something similar out of scrap 2×4’s since the shop chair is breaking.

This is very interesting to me. My son Russell bought me a pocket hole boxed complete system for Christmas last and I recently bought the clamp so that I can use it. I have not had the time to use it yet, with bronwens big operation etc etc ,although the next big project I do or small for that matter I will be incorporating these hidden screws into the design.I have many times done secret screws in projects with help to hold it and just angled the screws by eye with great results as they turned out nice and firm and strong.I find this table very appealing and practical and also I love the finish. Very well done. Thank you for showing it to us.Alistair
