I made this bench just for fun. I made it out of poplar and stained it a red mahogany. This bench can hold up to 550 lbs.

I’m not sure what I like more, the bench or the cheetah pattern flooring.

Great looking bench! I like the flowing, organic curve on the front, and how you made poplar look like mahogany.

Looks great and well crafted. Like the curves on the top and legs. Love the finish which really set it off.
