these are some pic’s of my most recent modifcation of my standard bench design, there done out of honduras mahogany and finished with three coats of teak oil . on this version i lightend the arms and made the seat depth a little shorter as per the clients reuest, they loved them, after making over seventyfive benches i still dont get tired of making these little darlings i just keep modifing the design mabe some day i will get the perfect bench ,but what fun would that be ? —michaeljon.woodworker

Benches are very attractive and your workmanship is superb.

Perfect bench! All that bench needs to be perfect is to be sitting in my back yard!

Wow these are beautiful benches.Great job. I would really love to know where you guys on here get all the lumber? It must cost a fortune. I know that if I was to purchase that kind of lumber here in Newfoundland it would break my bank account.
