I’m a woodworking hobbyist in NY. I made this bench for a friend of mine in NYC. She had a small area and really wanted something woodsy for her small apartment. I really like working with Spalted Maple and darker woods and came up with this design for her. I just joined LumberJocks and this is my first posting. I have several other projects that I have done with Spalted Maple that I might share, but I feel pretty out-performed here! You guys are all awesome, so I hope that you like this.
The legs are biscuit joined together and they were made with tenons at the top. I cut mortises in the bench top so the legs would be held sturdy. There are no nails or screws in this, it is held together with glue and the tension of the different pieces The whole project was finished with several coats of Watco’s Danish oil and then Arm-R-Seal over the course of several days.
