That’s sweet! Now I don’t consider this rustic, am I correct ? For me this is very nice piece of artistic design fit for anyones fine home good luck. Also I just thought have you ever heard the expression take your hands off this ? Well I say leave your hands on this.They are the nicest hands for arms I ever imagined sounds confusing but it works.Alistair

What a bench that is. I love the hands and the grain of the walnut (my favorite wood). To update an old post of a project, the best way is not to create a new project as you guessed. Just create a comment on your project and post the updated pictures within your comment. The fourth icon from the left when you’re writing a comment should help you do it.
