This project was completed using Lon Schleining’s plan from Fine Woodworking Magazine.
The bench is constructed from hard maple. I finished the top with danish oil, the base is finished with an oil based wipe on polyurethane. The bench top is 2 1/2” thick with a 6” apron.
This project took some time. (My wife will attest to that) but it appears that the bench will last for many more years than I will. There were a few mistakes made along the way, most of them corrected, but a few remain just to remind me that no one is perfect.
If one elects to tackle this project, I would tell you that the construction of the base is far more challenging and time consuming the the bench top.
