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.

Wow, very nice. Wonderful design and execution.

Do you have pictures of the vanity it goes with?
