This bench was made in teak I acquired during my stay in Kolkata, India. I made it all using hand tools, no nails and no screws, just traditional joinery as a gift for my friend. Him and his future wife really liked it. I had a joy making it with the tools I could find around here in the market and it’s my first project made only with hand tools. The bottom section connects to the top with a finger joint so you can see the end grain through the top, and the bottom stretcher connects to the sides by using a through mortise to showcase the joinery again. My inspiration for the design was taken from a similar bench made by Jimmy Diresta. Excited to be posting more past and future projects to this forum.
