The Queen requested an entry bench for her castle, so once again I looked to Lumberjocks for inspiration.
After review of many of your projects, borrowing details from many of them, I created this design.
All parts are fully mortise and tenoned together. Other than mounting of the maple drawer runners, not a single fastener is used in the entire construction, only glue joints.
The drawers are dovetailed aromatic cedar, with a 1/4” plank tongue and groove cedar floor.
The bench is constructed from red oak and saturated wth a custom mix stain (had 2 partial cans in cupboard and mixed them together). Then finished with 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal Gloss and 5 coats of SemiGloss.
It was a nice spring day out this afternoon, so I drug it outside for some natural light in the pictures.
Thanks for letting me share.
