I have to ask, what is the drawer for?
By the way, an outstanding piece of work!!!

This is what I want to build, but lack the skill. I like how you angled one of the legs so that the drawer will line up with the angle of the branch off shoot of the seat board, made it look like it’s supposed to be there. What finish did you use? Very nice bench!
