Solid red oak mission / craftsman style bench. Made this as a Mother’s Day present for my mom. All mortise and tenon or dowel joinery.

Really nice bench. It appears fairly deep, what are the dimensions? I’ll wager Mom will love it.

Thanks for posting.

Very nice! I can’t tell from the pictures, is the back straight or does it have any recline to it?

-- Chris - Would work, but I'm too busy reading about woodwork.

@CB_Cohick Thanks. The back is at an angle of 7 degrees, at little more then the “standard” of 5 degrees
