Inspired by Tim Dorcas five board bench , I made this Bench for my front porch from a rough sawn marine treated 2 X 12…......,using my undeveloped wood butchering skills, I ran it through the planer , cut the bevel with a hand saw and then knocked it down smooth with a 4” grinder and a sanding wheel.
Attached the legs with pocket holes. Then a 3/16 round over to dull the sharp edges.
Little sanded and then rubbed with BLO

A place to put you feet up or set your cold beverage on while relaxing on the front porch of my little cabin/cottage

Primitive but functional

And my first project posted

Primitive and functional works just fine at the cabin—great looking bench!

I like the bevel cut, it adds a nice visual perspective.
And if it holds up using the pocket screws, it’ll be very useful no doubt.
Nicely done.
