This is the the bench that I recently wrote about in a blog. I based the bench on a child’s dresser. The legs are ash and the body is oak frame and panel construction. It originally had a solid beech top. Shortly after finishing the bench, the top began to warp and eventually split in two. The new top is layers of mdf and hardboard. The banding was made from what was left of the beech top.
