This bench is made from walnut and is 8 feet long. I cut it out of a 12’ long boards so I could be sure that the grain flowed around the corner and down the legs.

You can watch it be built on Youtube

Well done, it’s beautiful.
What tool did you use to cut those dowel holes…at first I thought you were using a biscuit joiner until I saw the hole.
