Nice and simple. Great job and great inspiration. I need one too!

Question: Do I see dowels or tenons on top? How did you joint the stretcher to the legs? Dowels? Thanks.

Best,

Serge

All oak dowels, no screws. Used regular stain , & covered with Thompsons waterseal hoping that it will protect the oak dowels & stain, but if it doesn’t, it didn’t cost much to make.

Thanks for the details, Roger. Thompsons Waterseal is good stuff, but only if you apply a good coat every year. From my own experience.

Best,

Serge
