I made this walnut bench to be auctioned off at a fundraiser for my sons school. I was happy to hear that it fetched a little over 900 dollars.

That IS nice. The combo of dark wood and light weave looks stellar.

Nice.

I like the way the square seat rails look, and from that stand point they are perfect.
I find seat rails should be more rounded. It saves wear on the webbing and makes the seat last longer. But there is always that balance between looks and function.

It is beautiful.

Unfortunately, you do not see many project like this anymore, the weaving idea was a great one, and I am sure it will be around for a long time. You have a wonderful talent weaving
