This is my take on the classic little bench. The theme is St. Patrick’s Day. It’s joined with dovetails at the top and a mortise and tenon stretcher. I used water-based green dye on walnut (forgive me) with a black pore-filler, and then sprayed it with several coats of lacquer. This really made the grain pop, and created an affect like nothing I had ever seen. It’s the perfect place to set a pint of Guinness or your favorite Irish Whiskey.
