Brody,
Yes, M&T for the cherry slats. Lap joints for the maple frame. I used waterproof epoxy for assembly.

I love the bench! Do you have any experience with that wood outside? Is marine varnish really that good against the elements. I don’t have any experience with it, but I would be afraid to leave that bench outside…

Absolutely beautiful. Simple, straight-forward design. Great use of materials. And functional. How does it stand up under weathering and rain and all that?
