I built this bench to sit at the end of our bed. It is built out of red oak, dyed, and then a few coats of oil/poly. It has been a very useful piece of furniture.

Very nice. Is this your own design? What type/color dye?

The legs are 3” x 3”. I did not have any plans to go by. I just did a simple drawing and worked out the dimensions. The dye is Trans Tint med. brown.
