Go easy guys on me as this is my first ever piece of furniture. We needed a bench for the bathroom, so I was inspired by all the projects here to build it myself. The top is pine and legs are oak taken from the old vanity top. As you can see in the second picuture it goes good with the new tile and the shutter I did some time ago. Still working on the grouting but the tile is finally up. I did make a mortise on each of the legs. First time I tried to do that too. No close up as the joint was not as tight as I wanted it to be. Over all it came out good enough for its job.

Thanks for looking.

Great Looking Bench!

The choice of wood looks great with the tile colors and the privacy shutters.

Nothing to ashamed of here. Looks great and you did a nice job on the finish.

Keep up the good work and won’t be long until you’ll be putting us all to shame.

For a first piece of furniture, this is a beauty. I can’t say mine came out this well.

Nice work! I’d build one for my wife if we had the room.
