My neighbor wanted a 4th bench to complete a walnut table and set of 3 benches that were handcrafted by her grandfather in upstate New York in the late 1990s. The last picture is of the bench that I attempted to duplicate. Getting all the angles to match was a bit of a bear, but the final finish came out nice.

This is fine bench and you have done a fine job on these. They look like they are very sturdy and well built and the wood is beautiful.
