This bench was based on Chris Schwarz’s plans. It was made mostly from leftovers that have been piling up in the shop. Three of the legs are from cedar posts from a fence project. The fourth leg was from a fir laminate. The top was from some treated decking lumber. The shelf is from some half inch fir leftovers. Yes, it is painted. I was trying to use up leftover paint as well. I used some chalkboard paint on the top thinking that would be a handy place to note measurements. I did vary from Schwarz’s plans by beefing up the top some so the holdfast would work better. I also added a small box to hold pencils and chalk, and a tape measure holder that also has a handy pencil sharpener. This project was my first attempt at mortice and tenon joints. Much of the work was done with hand tools. Thanks for looking!
