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.

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?

watermark – for reason other than I loved what the wood looked like, so I decided to make it look big! Thanks.
