1 down and 20 more projects to go. Used up some rotting/wormy ash so it didn’t go to waste. Kinda threw it together to make the wife happy. And so I didn’t have to keep a weathered piece of ply with a couple 2×4 legs screwed to it that was trying to pass as a free table. Also learned what happens when you finish the bottom of a top and it drips and you don’t do anything about it. Oh well. Lesson learned.

Used some spar varnish and a couple coats of wax to finish. Dipped the feet in epoxy. Tried to epoxy most of the holes but I didn’t get all of them. Had to put a couple mahogany bow ties to keep a crack in check. Maybe. Oh, and I cut through some biscuits because I didn’t cut even amounts off when cutting final dimensions. Another lesson learned.

I enjoyed building it but I’m just glad it’s out my shop.

Thanks for looking.

Looks good, Fridge! I really like the bow tie (I only saw one, in the bench seat). Thanks for sharing.

Thanks yall, I got a lot of hand tool experience on this one, got some shop time, and learned a couple things so it was a good build.

Candy, there was is one at the bottom and another at the top left of the same seat. Kinda hard to see with the reflection of the light.
