A fairly straight-forward front porch bench. I saw the design on “Bing Images”.
The bench is White Oak, with Waterlox Marine Sealer/Finish and Finish, is approximately 48” x 20” x 21” (h), and includes a shelf for shoes.
The slats (both on the top and shelf) are floating mortises, with the mortise cut approximately 1/4” wider than the tenon – to allow for wood movement: the two center slats, on the top, are glued M&T, others simply float. The Breadboard edges have pegged-tenons to hold the project together. The top is cleated (10, in all) to the legs and side aprons.
Anyone interested in this project, I have the Sketch-up model (in metric, only).
