Just a simple five board bench that I made for my parents.
I’m new to woodworking, so the bigger stuff seems a lot easier. :)
Had to cheat and use some wood filler in the mortises.
Doug fir, sealed with cedar-shaded water seal.

Wood filler is not cheating. Everybody gets imperfect joinery. As gaps are concerned, the difference between the pros and the not-pros is how they fill the gaps.
