I was given a plank awhile ago. Don’t really know how long had been sitting in my shop. Finally I got this idea that has made some space in my work place.

Nice solid looking bench, is the stringer dovetailed into the legs or just mortise and tenon joint. I made a
similar maple meditation bench for my oldest son using mortice and tenon joints on the legs and top, since
it is listed as a screw less bench, I am guessing that is the joint used. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Dave

Good looking and stout bench! I’m sure it’s solid and sturdy, will get lots of use. Great work!
