Mesquite wood bench, custom, to fit me. 5’, crushed coral filler with both slabs angled for a comfy fit and possible nap. I sanded ruff slabs with a chainsaw disk, then 36g disk and a 120 disk, then 80g palm sander and finished with 150g palm sander. A few coats of basic urethane. Heavy, easy 100lbs. 12 screws. Very sturdy! I have a brace but it doesn’t need it.

Nicely executed! I love all the organic curves. Well done!
