My garden bench, design inspired by the Greene and Greene, Blacker house hall bench.
Reclaimed Oregon (Douglas Fir) with Jarrah plugs and splines, some oak dowels also. I filled the nail holes with dyed epoxy, I quite like the character provided by the nail holes and knots. Finished with 2 coats of decking oil. It’s not fine furniture but I’m working up to it!
This has been a great learning experience. 46 mortise and tenon joints and an opportunity to use a lot of different tools. This project has been a kind of therapy for me, helping me get through a particularly tough time. This woodworking thing really is a great hobby, cathartic and productive.
Thanks for all the inspiration on this site.
