The plans are from Jays Custom Creations.comn http://jayscustomcreations.com/2014/01/how-to-make-a-horse-themed-bench/ This is a fantastic site with “free”, but donations are appreciated- web site for woodworkers. Not only does Jay offer the plans, which are detailed and easy to follow, videos and many useful woodworking tips and tricks. I chose to build the horse themed bench sans the horse. It is a solid design and built to last, make sure to opt for the curved seat.
I used redwood instead of pine and filled the screw holes with “bung” plugs. Finish 3 coats of oil based spar varnish. The bench is made with traditional woodshops tools, but the back is fabricated on my CNC. The back is finished with metal coatings from http://www.sculptnouveau.com/
