I made this settee to sell at an upcoming craft show. It was made from maple and has walnut plugs. Virtually all the shaping was done with auriou rasps and the seat was reinforced with a festool dominos. Finished with maloof oil and wax.

Every inch of this Settee reveals the excellent craftsmanship that went into this beautiful piece. Well done!

A very beautiful creation Sir, you are truly a Master Craftsman. Love the maple & walnut mix, accentuates the jointing and hand crafting quite well.
Looking forward to your next creation.

An excellent job on this beauty! I have seen these before and was always concerned about the seat strength with the grain running front to back. Obviously it works but just looks a little scary.

Thank you all! Phil- I would strongly recommend getting one asap. I’ve gone from making a project in a week to just a day or so with the domino and domino xl. gfadvm- I was a bit skeptical too, but i’ve sat about 500 lbs of cattle feed sacks on top of it to test it out and it didn’t budge.

I would never have had the courage to test the seat like you did! That answers all my concerns.

I made a comment earlier on this fantastic looking work.
I was sure I would see a “Daily Top 3” on this project. I’m Just trying to understand how one earns that recognition.
Again, Excellent job on this Settee.

woodshaver- I have had a few projects I thought would get top three pretty easy but never did. I don’t really understand their ranking process but I do enjoy the site, and all the kind words! Thanks again!

Guys, I think the top three are the result of the number of views in 24 hours, and I also think that the Jocks on this site view the projects that are jigs or shop made woodworking accessories more often. They are looking for things to make their shop time more productive, while satisfying a woodworker’s natural desire to create and overcome challenges.
BUT, I could be wrong, these are just my humble opinions.
