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 looking bench! I love the Asian look and feel of it—very peaceful!

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