Entry way bench for the front door – finished with double boiled linseed oil. I might do an epoxy finish at a later time, but i’d like to see how this holds up first. Thanks for looking.

veri nice. What kind of wood is it, and how did you flatten the slab?

Thanks guys,

Rwde, legs are cedar, top is fur, I have no idea what the bowtie inlay, other than I love the natural color it has. I flattened the top with the offerman router plane jig.

Very cool bench, and that is one big freaking bowtie! That’s something Steve Harvey would wear!

Great bench. I like the through tennons for the legs. Is there a reason for such a big bowtie or just cause it looks good?
