This was my first real woodworking project a few years back. I had a few major ‘lessons learned’ on this one. On the leg tennons, I cut thru a biscuit that you can see on top of the bench and the tennons were sloppy so I framed them (bad choice IMHO). Even with the mistakes, I still really like this one. Had some extra wood so I made the wall art to hang behind it based on something my wife wound on the internet.

I disagree on the framing, it looks sharp and well integrated. The wall art is a perfect compliment to your work. Nicely done on both.

They turned out really beautiful. They are a perfect match on that location.
