Good job, Nick. From the photo, looks like a good glue up of the top. Tell us more about the base … what joinery did you use, and why? Would you do anything differently next time?

Let me flip that image for you, Nick. You did a great job on the bench, don’t be afraid to write a little more about the build process. Like Ron said, tell us about the joinery (mostly mortise & tenons) how you used biscuits to glue up the top, and maybe an area that you struggled with.

Everyone makes mistakes when woodworking, but we wanna hear how you overcame those “oops!” moments.

Great work, bud! you’ll have a nice piece that’ll last a lifetime!
