This was one of the first projects I made when I started woodworking about 18 months ago. It’s a hall bench from a plan that I found on the internet somewhere. I modified it a bit. Almost all of it is made from standard sized red oak from Home Depot but with round walnut supports to lift it with at the top. The finish is an oil/varnish mix. As you can see I used Festool dominos that provide support (pics 5 & 6) for the part you sit on, which is a cushion my wife made on 1/2 inch mdf. It’s pretty sturdy. My wife was skeptical about the dominos being able to support the weight of a couple of people sitting on it so I used more than I would have otherwise.
