If you look at the blog I posted titled “Box Elder?” this is actually the slab that was in question. Turns out it was cherry! It looked so different before a few coats of danish oil and satin poly. The slab is very thick around 2”. As with most projects, I learned a ton which is very helpful. Thanks for looking and God bless!

Very nice bench!

I love the thickness and the live edge.

I love the dutchman key you used; can you tell us how you made it? By hand, or with a router?

Dean, I hand cut the dutchman with a coping saw with scraps from the walnut and then traced it with an awl, then I drilled and chiseled it. I do not own a router but do have access to one. I prefer to do most things by hand. Thanks for looking and God bless!

Fine wood, fine work. ;-)
