This bench was built using old barnwood that makes up an interesting combination of redwood, fir, and oak. I used pegged mortise and tenon joints through. It turned into a fairly stout bench (the 4×4 legs added a lot of weight). For more photos and a more descriptive explanation of the build process check out this link:
