I needed a project for our church’s silent auction, found the plans for this bench in Wood Smith.com. I found some cheap ash at a local hard wood dealer, man is this stuff hard. This is the first time I tried through tenons and I found out I need a better saw to do these. Started out with an oil stain and didn’t like the results then I put a mahogany dye over top and it came out ok. Topped with three coats of General Finishes semi.
Opening bid was $40 and it went for $75. I’m pleased with that.
