Nice. Did you bend that?

Wow that is beautiful, great design, so are those ash strips glued together? What is the finish, is there a finish on it?

Yes- the strips are glued together on either end – the middle is open. Danish cord on the end – but it is just decorative. No finish on it – because I could not figure out how to finish prior to glue up and don’t want variation in the color if I finish after.
Thanks for the comments.

I love the organic shape of your bench! The ropework really adds a nice flare.
Great job, well done!

Delicious. I am curious as to the joinery of the angled struts to the top.

Great design and out of the box thinking. Kudos….

Vipond33 – there is a 4 inch wide board that runs from one end of the bench to the other- and the struts are (angle) mortised (then wedged) into that board. The Bench top sits on the board with glue on the ends that are “solid”, with 4 screws from the bottom as insurance – and then covered by the stringing.
