I made this from lumber salvaged from our raised beds in our summertime weed garden (no not that kind of weed). I saw an article in a magazine about raised dovetails on a salvage lumber bench and thought it looked cool. I did plane my lumber so it doesn’t really look salvaged. Finished with amber shellac.

That is a really nice alteration to traditional dovetails, pretty cool. Nice work.
