This bench was a what the heck project. We had been talking about needing a bench for the front of the house for a while. I had saved some Black Walnut logs from going into the neighbors fire pit. My boy’s assisted with the cutting and sanding. Lynn and I did the poly finish. This was one of those projects that envolves the whole family.

The bench has 3 coats of poly and will be moved outdoors when needed from our three season porch. The legs are connected using 1 1/2in. tenons that I shaved down using the band saw and a chisel.

I seem to have a number of those “what the heck” projects also. I like the three legs. Simple and functional.

That’s a beautiful bench. I’m getting ready to do a similar build. Did you do any butterfly keys on the underneath side?
