Second oldest son is always saying he is going to steal my bench. For Fathers day I made him this one. Live edge walnut mortise and tenon framework and a 3 inch thick douglas fir top. Tray has a crotch walnut cover I do not do much live edge but this was fun. It will never look this good again- this young man (33) will use it…........ Enjoy

Sorry if it seems unfinished but it just slides down on tenons. Makes it easier to move. It does not lift off of them very easily though.

At first glance of the 1st picture, I thought you had inlaid a boat paddle into the top! Nice bench, Your son should be able to pass it along to HIS children one day!
