I want to give credit to several people who have inspired me, challenged me, and gave me visual tutorials to correct my mistakes.

Please see my blog post for my journey

Mark Hillard presented me with an observation that” maybe I would rather work on my tools then build a furniture piece. First, I got angry, because he busted me out, and then we discussed building this piece with the two week timeline. Mark wanted me to build a simple table. I questioned what I would do with it when it was finished. I propose that I would build a functional piece, which would serve in two ways. The first being I needed a stepstool because I’m 5’8” and shrinking to work on my three-quarter ton pickup truck. It had to be sturdy enough to hold me and a piece of equipment. The second, being I’ve talked about having a bench in my shop/barn in order to sit down near to the ground while I feed and pet my shop kitties!

Nice bench and Mark’s observation sure hits too close to home. ;-)

Its great to see your first furniture piece. I like the look of the through tenons and the cats seem to be enjoying your bench as well.

Great bench. Great blog.
Try, adapt, overcome, relax.
You have the process down pat.
Good job.
