Hi Ron,
I’m making a bench similar to yours (but shorter) for my sister. It looks like you used cut nails to join this, did you also use glue? I’d like to keep the bench rustic and simple.
Thanks, Michael

Thanks for asking, Michael. I used no glue on this bench , just the cut nails. There are stop dadoes under the top for the legs, and then rebates on the legs to accept the apron. The cut nails seem to do the trick as this bench has been used extensively for a number of years and is as solid as the the day it was built. Good luck with your build!
