I built this teak bench for a customer a year or so ago and had a lot of fun in the process. Although I had a very short time frame in which it had to be done. This project made me fall in love with the Festool Domino joiner.

That is one really tough build but it looks like you aced it from here. I hope you had help from a computer for the layout. Smart looking work.

Nice boat!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very nice bench too.
Making furniture to fit the curves of a boat is always a special challenge.
As Gene said… You aced it.

Paul, It maybe 165’ of steel floating on the water, but it’s nothing like the Ryboviches that used to be built in this yard.

Gene, No computers here just a man, his pencil, and some paper.

Have your say...
