Super sturdy looking bench. You could probably drive a car on it.

I’ve never used a mortise and tenon joint (yet), but I plan to incorporate them into my next project.

Does the end of the tenon need to go all the way through the leg for strength? Or could you stop the tenon short and have the end grain not show?

Thanks i didnt try for the car but is shure to last a long time
The leg to bench slab is a mortice and tenon and the legs are a lap joint, you could stop it before as long as its tight because thats where the weight transfer to the other pieces

Solid looking bench. I like the simplistic, but strong look.

That’s a beautiful and sturdy looking bench. Like the clean look of the wood and those hefty legs. Great job!
