Boy I really like that bench! I would also like to add my voice to the list of more details on the 3-way finger joint.

New picture added of corner joint – originally the fingers were thirds but prototype (also in oak) which is in kids playroom creaks as the weight goes on so strengthen them by making the front rail fingers 1/2 the thickness. Oak Frame is 44mm (or roughly 1 3/4 inch).Top seating is attached from underneath with screws in slotted holes which were then plugged with oak to coverup.
Thanks for all the comments

It would be a shame to sell it anyway. I hate to see my babies go.
