This is a simple shaker bench made from pine. my wife needed one to
put flower pots on it. It was a good opportunity for me to practice bandsawing curves. i finished it with a coat of shellac and while it was still sticky
applied the milkpaint. some areas still telegraph the pine but that is what my wife liked so i will call that done.

It’s a real nice project and looks good.

Lovely Bench! Real Home Sweet Home Qualities. This will go into my favourites as a future project.
Thanks for posting it.

Thank you for the comments. Sometimes, simple projects are the one that are the most appreciated.
