This is a walnut and maple bench I’ve been working on for a year or so in my spare time. I work full time as a IT/computer/network contractor, so i’m learning as I go. The base is walnut (great wood to work with) the seat slats, back slats and arms are maple. I used walnut plugs to hide the screws. I’ve still got to apply a few coats of poly. Most of my woodworking projects have been southern yellow pine adirondack chairs that get painted, so working with nicer woods has been great and expensive. I’ve learned alot building this, maple nor walnut are readily available in most towns. When you do find it, it’s super expensive compared to southern yellow pine. All in all,,it was lots of fun.
