It’s a beauty.
The more I see this bench, the more I think they nailed it at Benchcrafted.
If I did not have a wonderful bench, this would no doubt be my choice.
Love your build.
May it serve you well.

Just gorgeous! If I built a bench that nice I am afraid that I couldn’t use it for rear of damage. It looks like a piece of furniture. Well Done -
