Nice bench. I’m thinking about making one for my wife. Is it inclined or flat? What are the dimensions?
Really good work!

Beautiful bench. I love how you accentuated those through tenons. Great job on the carving as well!

I recongnized that carving from your blog and thought someone was copying your work for a second. Then I looked at the project and it was you. I love your blog and it’s cool to see your projects on here as well. I really liked this project when you blogged it.

I’m getting too old and busted to get down on my zafu any more. May have to add this to the infinite To-Do list.

Thanks for sharing :-)

That’s a beautiful “time-out” bench. But “Meditation” sounds better. It’s nice to see a project with depth and reason. Great post.
