Simple cedar bench made from rough 1×6 cedar stock. I don’t own a planer, so I had to sand to something in the neighborhood of square and smooth. Put together with screws and filled with plugs from same stock. Would design and construct differently next time, even with my limited tools and knowledge. Even more so, I look forward to learning traditional joinery methods and skills one day. Nevertheless, it is always satisfying to make something that is useful and sturdy.
