I built this bench to match a Harvest Farm Table that I built in the winter. I tend to build Time worn rustic furniture that fits into the old farm lifestyle. I have a local mill near me that cuts the lumber with a mill from the late 1800’s and i just can’t seem to get myself to plan or sand off those beutiful saw marks they have become my trade mark for 80% of the building I do. yes my rooster Vern always seems to find his way into the photos.

Very nice bench. I just finished a farm table and wanted to build a bench just like yours to go with it. A co-worker mentioned he has a “store-bought” farm table with a bench. He mentioned a problem with the bench falling over to the point where it broke his neices’ foot.

I was thinking of tapering the legs out so they are wider than the bench but they may be in the way as folks are sliding in on the bench when it is at the table. The primary use is for grandchildren so I sure don’t want them getting hurt.

It’s hard to tell from the photo but are the legs straight on your bench?

Thanks

Ron

The legs are perpendicular to the seat. But the legs are tapered from the floor to the seat. the base of the legs are equal to the seat width. hope that answers your question.
