This bench is based on the design from Russell Jensen’s Fine Woodworking article, Japanese Garden Bench. My wife wanted a bench for our foyer and I really liked this design. To fit the space, I needed to reduce the length by about 14” so I took out two of the back slats and shortened the back panel.
I used ash leftover from when I built my workbench.
The finish is Watco Danish Oil, which is the same finish that is on the workbench. I like the color it imparts and I figured it would be easy to refresh after a few years of use.
