Very nice. One like that would look great in my back yard.

Nice! Kind of a stretched version of the one I made from the FWW plans.
Do you intend to keep it outside and if so do you plan on added finish protection?

Great series of videos. White Oak is the perfect material for that bench but also one of the most challenging.
