Walnut bench from 2 inch stock. Pretty simple design finished in tung oil. The legs and top have a slight taper. My oldest son has laid claim to it for his new house when he gets it!

Very nice. Gotta love the look of thick walnut. Interesting choice to use two wedges on the Tusk ‘n tenon. I also like that you left the knots in.

Thanks everyone! My son decided to change his mind and laid claim to my latest bench. Which will be published in a few minutes! This walnut bench is 20 inches high, 14 inches deep and 44 inches long. Tung oil finish has held up pretty well. Now to get to work on another one…
