Another great job. I like the center detail.

Very well done! I love how, at least in this pic, the sculpted nature of the seat isn’t obvious. I also love the medicine wheel-like detail in the center. Just a really good looking bench.

In a word: SPECTACULAR!
I’m going to “borrow” your concept! I like the back and the bench, but I think I’ll do the legs a little different, I’m thinking something a little beefier.

This is a nice piece. What wood did you use for the bench?

Very cool. Great design. Its very inviting. Is the bench portion shaped to fit the sitter’s undercarriage?

The design skills on this one are excellent. With basic simple square boards you have managed to create a very elegant piece. I’ll put it in my favorites!

It looks like a simple design, but I’ll bet it was actually very difficult. Great bench , Great Job. Thanks for sharing.

Again another great piece, your on a roll here :>) I have a couple of questions: First, what woods did you use. And, second, it looks in the picture, at least to me, that two of the legs (front left & back right) are bent in while the other two are not bent…or maybe bent in a different direction?? Or is it just the photo makes it look that way?? A very interesting effect either by photo or the actual piece. Like I said it is beautiful I really like it, great work.

Very nice design. I like the contrasting wood in the center to draw your to it.

I love the clean design. It has a nice crisp look while still looking comfortable and inviting. The color contrast is right on!
I wouldn’t mind seeing a couple more angles and some close ups!
