I’ll bet that that pic doesn’t really do your bench justice. I’ll bet the colors are really pretty in person. The top looks really rich and deep even in the pic though but I bet the base and top together look really nice in person. Nice work. Looks loke some magnificent wood in the top.

Beautiful wood, great craftsmanship, and a super finish. But I can’t figure out the joinery on the stringer between the legs? How did you do that?

Love it. May I ask, how did you connect the base to the top?

The blocks on the inside and outside of the stretcher are glued to the stretcher and leg panels to hold everything together (and hide some sloppy mortises).

The base fits into grooves routed in the top and epoxied to fix it in place. It ain’t going anywhere.
