My son got me Benchcrafted hardware for Christmas so I had to build something to put it on.

A lot of gluing, fitting, trimming, and work, but in the end a bench that I love.

And it was great to work with my son on this project.

Pure jealousy here…that is a beautiful bench. I’m heading to HandWorks 2017 tomorrow and can’t wait to stop in at the Benchcrafted booth!

Fantastic looking bench.
Unfortunately, it is now apparent that I have two defective sons. :)

Not only did you do a beautiful job on the bench apparently your son turned out well too!

(I love that you have sawdust on the floor.) :-)
