This has been a long time coming. Working without a proper bench has been a bit of a pain.
A big thanks to Mike VanPelt at American Sycamore. I never would have found the time to get this built on my own. 2 days with Mike and we knocked this beautiful bench out. A little more clean up and a few coats of finish and I’ll be good to go!
Bench is maple with walnut accents. Top is 2.5” thick with 5” X 2” outer rails. I finished the base with 2 coats of Polywhey from Vermont Natural Coatings. The top gets several coats of an oil/varnish blend that Adam King recommended.
