Bench to go under a vanity unit. Made from maple with walnut wedges in the tenons. Biggest problem was photographing it, the light wood on a white background was difficult to get the white balance.

Think i’ll have to make a version of this with a shelf to be a tv stand.

That is beautiful? How are the legs attached to the bench? Mortise and tenon?

that is a really nice looking design. I like the curved shapes and angles and the wedged tenons are a nice touch.

I will repeat what everyone else is saying, that is a beautiful bench. I have made a few benches but your’s is sexy, and elegant, functional and simplistic. The curves and angles are eye catching it shows your attention to detail and woodworking skills.
