Here is my attempt at a bench I found on another woodworking site. It is constructed almost entirely out of home made maple lumber. The back is T&G cedar. The base is finished with a latex whitewash and two coats of spray on varnish. The seat is finished with two coats Teak oil finish, five coats wipe on poly and one coat Renaissance wax

well done, Jeff. Is the top maple also? Looks like it has a little color to it.

Nice – I really like the way you did this, the whitewash compliments the tone and finish of the top so well!

I really like this
What dimensions did you make it? It looks about 3/4’s the length of your table saw

Nice little bench. Care to pony up the dimensions?

Thank you all for the kind words..
For those of you that asked ; the base is 18 inches tall, 26 inches long and 11 and a half inches deep. The top is 28 X 13 and is about an inch and an eighth thick. It’s “about 1 and 1/8” because it wouldn’t fit in my planer so I planed it with my trusty #6
