The bench really caught my eye when I saw it on the show, so I took on a winter project that bled into spring and summer. No plans were available, but Tommy's walkthrough was pretty thorough.
I’m real happy with how it turned out. Once I got the angles defined and drew out a template for the scarf joint on the cross piece, it came together pretty well. It’s all pegs, wedges and sandwich lap joints. Top is 20” deep and 4’ long.
Sapele mahogany finished with BLO and Epifanes, figure I’ll recoat periodically. Top’s nice and shiny in the sun… I hope the Epifanes lives up to its reputation for durability.
Thanks for looking.
