Maple and Mahogany bench. Seats lift up on piano hinges. I tried to make the seats from the same stock as the top, but found the small strips running front to back allowed too much contraction and the spindles would have been pulled in (back piece ‘shrank’ over 1/2”!)
Finished with 5 coats of Waterlox.
Oh and my wife filled it the moment it was in place. Not sure if she was more excited about the seating or storage…
