Beautiful contrast in woods, and a great creative way to construct, and hide the fasteners!

I hope you have more to prevent racking than the very shallow dado and the screws?

Do you have any triangular braces between the bench-top and the legs? The bottom is not visible…

If not, you may want to consider adding something. Over the years, lateral forces will bend the screws until the bench wiggles and ultimately breaks.

Nice design.
