Had a walnut slab laying around and since I had never worked with a slab nor built a bench..what the hell. Legs are joined to the top with 1” dowells and epoxy. Seems pretty solid. Two coats of Watco DO so far. Once those dry I think I’ll put on some coats of varnish. We’ll see if my wife likes it in place. If not I’m not sure what plan B is. Any ideas?

Plan B is buy a camera so you can take pictures the right way around because your phone is apparently too complicated.

Paul, are you turning the camera sideways (vs vertical)?
If so, are you Left-handed & need to push the shutter button with your Left hand?
If so, That is why they are upside down…

If you were Right-handed, they would be right-side up…

In any event, the final pictures could be edited to ROTATE them to the proper orientation.
... like “htl” did…

I think I would BLO on it… followed by Poly top coat… assuming it’s a bench… a Saddle bench?

BUT… (?)
