this was made to be a table but it could also be a bench..it took a whole 30 min to make..and 3 days to finish..4 coats of spar poly. sometimes simple is the way to go..

How did you attach the legs to the bottom? Mortise and tenon, dowels, butt joint?

That’s a great looking bench/table, your right sometimes simple is the way to go. Cedar is such a great looking wood, I wouldn’t change a thing, well maybe the location, it would look great in my backyard ;)

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
