I like this, especially the subtle inlay. I’ve got the lumber to make one, just got a few more projects to finish up before I get started.

thank you all.
I had a message asking how the arm rest / table top was mounted. Here’s how…...(counter sunk 5/16” X 3-1/2” lag screws, dowels, and wood glue)

Great bench. You have taken advantage of the natural shape of the wood pieces to great effect to craft a wonderful looking bench.

A fantastic piece. This is the kind of project that just makes me wanna do something even better in my work….and looking at this bench, that would be a tall order to fill. The joinery and shaping/sculpting you did on this is just magnificent. A definite head-turner for sure. Great job.
