I like it. Are those butt joints screwed with plugs over the top? I’ve wanted to build something similar but haven’t been quite sure if that was sufficient jointing or not.

the joints are screwed butt joints on back and front legs into a 1×4 cross support on either side with plugs, the top was simple glue and brad nails. I use it my self all the time and i wiegh 200lbs and it remains solid as the first day built. The hardware i used was steal 2” screws. Just ensure the top over laps the front legs for added strength and wala.

thanks for the posts gents and god bless u and yours!
