This was actually a prototype i made for a sofa. its supposed to have a futon on it. however, i got the angles wrong (cut 42 degrees instead of 47, etc) so had to recut and the seat was too short for the tests with the futon.
so i made it into a nice bench. the joints are held together with biscuits and glue and i did my best to break it to no avail.
the glue is interior (cross linked) as i expected it to be sofa so i expect it to give up some day and break.
frame is DF, slats cedar finished with shellac and yacht varnish (one coat – i was lazy and i needed the space in the garage).
it is very comfortable.
