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.

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.

Great piece!

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?

-- Happy woodworking!

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!
