i am a beginner at wood working its not like a lot of these i see on here some of yalls stuff just amazes me of the skills here i see .just a simple beanch that i got off the net from
http://www.buildeazy.com/newserve/boot-benchseat-1.html
there is a lot of easy buids of stuff there. i was watching wood working for mere motals a week or so ago and he made this nice bench then he talked about his contest well i wasnt waching that close r i would have know it wasn,t a bench contest. it was a contest of saying something after ,mere mortals ...... what ever i went back and checked the dead line found out i was wrong on it rewatched the video .how stupid was that of me.steve if i you had a bench contest mine would of been A Mere Mortal needs to pay attention. LOL . my daughter got dubs on this one .i changed it up some i had some cedar a guy gave me and put some of it over the pine and put buttons over the screw hole and got it a little off center.and made the seat out of a cypress board and covered it with cedar a star burst design .its Patrons pattern i saw him fix a box with it a few weeks back and asked how he did it .we were on stumpys nubs forum or what ever they are called he showed me how to do it there with some pictures and a link .went back to find it but a lot of post have went by anyway i learned a lot on this .glue dries really fast and you can use to much. next time i will use some glue thats has a little slower curing time .THANKS David.i want to make a table and chairs with this to for my other daughter is what started this and thought this would be a good primer and it was to and the other one ones a book shelf i told them as i learn i will. but still got a lot more skills to learn .im going to try and get a hold of patron and get that link from him its not that hard maybe a little testy and he has a good tutorial of it .thank you guys for sharing and looking.

well eddie
i think it looks just great

the cedar back and the seat top
really go well together
and we all know that storage is hard to find
so this will be well received i’m sure

as far as being a beginner
that’s to late to claim now
you are out in the stream
rowing like the rest of us

i see good things in your future

very nice

and thanks for the plug
anything i can do to help
just holler

That don’t look like a beginner’s woodworking project. Very nicely done, Eddie.

I love the pattern in the seat. That’s a great way to show off some beautiful wood.

Hey eddie – this turned out great! That seat will really brighten up the room and it’s really a functional project. I tend to build useless items…....may have to try one of these. Great job!
