Very nicely done Geoff your choice of wood combinations work very well together. I also like the style of the bench. Is that your design?

Great design. The holes and the curves work really well together. And the oak/walnut looks great in combination. Just a nice job all around!

The design is a modification of one from fine wood working magazine. Building a table to match and another bench to complete the set.

I like the whole project, especially the beveled edges on the ends of the seat. It’s the kind of subtle detail that adds a lot of interest without being really flashy. Good work!
