This is the year that I am finally going to use up my off cuts! This bench is mahogany, koa and maple with koa legs. I used pieces that were 1 3/4” alternating with 1 3/8” to give a ripple effect ( very comfortable as well). I glued them together in groups of 4 to make sure I had good clamping pressure. Once all the pieces were glued together, I ran the seat through my drum sander to get the bottom level. Next I cut the ends on the bandsaw and used my grinder to round over the edge, then I added the legs and the finish. I’ve got three more benches in the works and some new ideas for using up all the special wood that I couldn’t part with….........
