This is the first item I’ve made with mortise and tenon joints. Adapted width from Wood Mag plans to to fit the place on our front porch where the wife wanted a bench. Learned lots while making several mistakes as usual. Learned how soft cedar is. I think I could spit and make a mark! If you look carefully at the end shot you can see my patches covering the mistake when gluing up the first mortise and tenon joint on an end assembly (rotated wrong). 2 coats of Waterlox Marine Sealer and 2 of their Marine Finish.
