Hey guys, thanks for the warm welcome to LJ. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this place until yesterday. I finished this piece 2 days ago.
Solid Oak
approx. 18”H x 18”W x 12”D
I built this to replace a cheap squeaky metal/cloth bench at the church where I am the music director.

The top is cross laminated 1×8s and 1×6s.

I don’t know if the joints have a name already, but they were the strongest design I could come up with.

I really look forward to using this bench every week through the years.

Finish is a sealcoat of Shellac and 3 coats of satin finish Poly finished off with wax. The finish turned out really well.

J,
Those are dowel joints. I figured with the lipped legs, floor-to-seat glue blocks, and the dowels that those joints don’t have anywhere to go for a while. Thanks for looking!

I love the joints! That is a really great way to attach the legs and have it give a great image!
